The 17-year old dalit girl was reportedly taken away by two men on a motorcycle on her way back home from school. The girl's body was found on Tuesday.
"Karnataka has become rape city. A girl was kidnapped and raped by 5 men while she was returning home. This is the worst condition of law and order in Karnataka. This is a shame to the Congress party. Shame to the CM," BJP leader and former home minister, R Ashok said.
Karnataka Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah had ordered a CID probe into the death.
The incident has led to tension in some areas there for the past three days. Many dalit and progressive organisations across Karnataka staged protests demanding the immediate arrest of the accused.
