- The group of 11 were clicking photos of the girl without her consent
- When her brother objected, he was slapped and beaten up
- The group was caught while trying to flee after a complaint was filed
Police said that the group, comprising of nine men and two teenagers, were clicking photos of the girl at a shack in north Goa's Baga beach when her brother, 18-year-old, objected. Their parents were nearby and were having food.
"When the boy objected to the group taking photos of his sister, they allegedly slapped and beat him," Calangute police station's Jivba Dalvi said, quoting a complaint filed by the victims' parents.
Police said clicking photos without consent amounts to outraging one's modesty.
"The mobile phone used to click pictures of the girl was confiscated and will be sent to a forensic laboratory for analysis," Mr Dalvi said.
