The accused, including Amit Bhadana, a contractor linked to the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), were being taken out of court after a hearing when they faced the fury of the lawyers and some other bystanders. Reports said the lawyers kept saying that the accused should hang.
It took several moments for the police to get their act together and rush the accused back to the jail. But the police say none of them were seriously injured.
Amit Bhadana, his driver Azad Singh Gurjar and Shobhit Gurjar - the girl's facebook friend - allegedly abducted the teenager in Meerut last Saturday when she was returning home from tuition at around 7 PM. The police said the girl had befriended Shobhit on Facebook and agreed to meet him for her birthday.
The three - all between 25 and 32 years - were arrested yesterday and sent to 14 days judicial custody today. A fourth man is still missing.
