Six persons have been arrested for gang-raping a 28-year-old woman after she was kidnapped near Bikaner this week, police said on Friday.
“She reported the crime on September 26. During investigation, we found that eight persons were involved. We have arrested six of them,” Bikaner Superintendent of Police S.S. Godara told IANS.
As per the woman’s complaint, she was abducted by two men on September 25 from a roadside around 30 km from Bikaner, after she had gone there from Delhi regarding a property matter.
After the two gang-raped her, police said, the culprits called at least six more persons who also sexually assaulted her.
She said she was subsequently taken to an isolated place where more men raped her. The victim claimed more than 20 persons were involved in the sexual assault.
“I was dropped the next day at the same place from where I was abducted,” she said. Informed sources said the woman has since got her statement recorded in a magistrate’s court regarding the crime.
