Police are searching for a group of sex-crazed Indian men who allegedly raped a heavily-pregnant woman after attacking her husband, local reports confirm.
The victim’s husband was tied and locked up in a van while the rapists took turns on his 20-year-old wife.
According to a report from NDTV.com, the rape victim is carrying an eight-month-old pregnancy. The couple had traveled to Tasgoan to find employees for their newly established hotel but were unwary of the planned attack.
One of the rapists lured the couple to Tasgoan after claiming that he knew someone who would take the job. However, the schemer asked for an advance payment of 20,000 rupees in cash and a meeting to discuss the contract terms.
The couple arrived for their scheduled meeting but during discussions, four of the 8-man gang dragged her into a nearby room for forced sex. Her husband was beaten, tied, and locked up in a van while the sex abuse lasted.
The hoodlums fled after gang-raping their helpless victim and taking away her valuables – money and jewelry. They also warned their victims against reporting the traumatizing incident at any police station, adding that “nobody would listen to them.”
Police have arrested three of the rapists, India Times reported. In their statements, the men admitted that they knew the woman, having worked at her hotel about 6 months ago. However, the victim testified they were strangers to her.
She filed a complaint but refused to undergo medical tests.
