According to reports, the girl was in love with a young man. She was first assaulted by him and later by his friends. Police say she was assaulted 14 times.

The POSCO case has seven accused and the police has strengthened the search for the rest.
The main accused is a man the young girl befriended on Instagram. The man is said to have her gotten hooked to drugs such as ganja and hashish oil. He reportedly started sexually abusing her once he got her hooked on drugs and began blackmailing her. His friends also abused her.
