Raped by gangs and strangled, a woman from Chhatisgarh arrests four defendants

RAIPUR: Raped by four men, strangled and left for dead, a 20-year-old woman crawled to a relative's place, took almost a week to recover from the trauma and arrested them all on Monday. The four defendants are between 19 and 20 years old.

The survivor had gone to her maternal uncle's house in another village for a family function. On the night of December 2, she left to get rid of the garbage, but the four, who seemed to be on the prowl, grabbed her and dragged her to an isolated place. She screamed for help but nobody heard her while a speaker played on the show.

The four cloths stuffed in her mouth and then took turns raping her. Then, they tried to strangle her, the complaint says. She fell unconscious and the four, believing she was dead, fled. After regaining consciousness, he somehow returned to his uncle's house, but said nothing about the incident.

Finally, on Sunday, he told his parents about the incident and said he was determined to bring them to justice. They immediately took her to the police, who registered an FIR.
