Guwahati: In a horrific incident reported from Rajasthan’s Churu district, a young woman from Assam miraculously survived after she was allegedly gangraped by four men and thrown out of the window of a private residence last week.

According to the police in Rajasthan and Assam, the incident happened on the intervening night of February 11-12.

“The accused persons have been apprehended and legal proceedings have begun. SP Churu has filed a case and is looking into the investigation,” M L Lather, Director General of Rajasthan Police, told EastMojo.

The 25-year-old native from Assam’s Dhubri district was residing in Delhi’s Rohini area, when she was lured into getting a job in Churu and was called to Rajasthan by one of the accused.

“Three accused have been arrested and investigation in the case is ongoing. The incident did not happen in a hotel as reported by some media; it was at a private property,” Churu Superintendent of Police Digant Anand told EastMojo.

Once the victim reached Churu, she was allegedly gangraped by four men on Friday night and then thrown out from the first-floor balcony of a private building. She survived the fall after getting tangled on a pole.

“The accused tried to push the victim but she got tangled on a pole,” the SP added.

The accused persons have been identified as Bhavani Singh, Devendra Singh, Sunil Rajput and Vikram Singh, all from Rajasthan, and have been charged under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal code.

“The accused were arrested from Churu, Bikaner and nearby areas, and the search for the fourth is still on. Court proceedings will begin shortly in the case,” SP Anand said.

The SP added that the victim has left for home. “We had tried contacting her family but no one showed up, so she left on her own,” he said.

“Assam Police is in touch with Rajasthan Police and have requested them for quick investigation and arrest of all accused persons. They are cooperating and the investigation is satisfactory till now,” G P Singh, Special Director General of Assam Police (Law and Order), told EastMojo.
