However, due to heavy dosage, she didn’t have much recollection of what had happened to her. But once she did get to know about it as pictures of the occurrence had also been taken, she immediately reached out to a hospital but they had refused to provide her with a rape kit. Forcing her to approach a second hospital, only to find out, that due to the long gap, no traces were found. However, this did lead to the expulsion of one student and the rest walked away scot-free.
