AMRITSAR: Six men have been arrested over the rape of a passenger on a coach in India, police said on Sunday.
The victim had boarded the service to her in-laws’ home in the northern state of Punjab when she was abducted on Friday and driven to a district bordering the city of Amritsar, local police officer Raj Jeet Singh said.
Five men joined the driver and conductor, who had taken her by motorbike to an unknown address, and took turns to rape the victim before dropping her off near her in-laws’ village on Saturday morning, he said.
“Six men have been arrested on allegations of having raped a 29-year-old woman after forcibly taking her to an unknown location on the night of Jan.11,” the policeman said, adding that a seventh suspect was being hunted.
“After raping the victim throughout the night, one of the accused dropped her near her in-laws’ house the next morning where she narrated the whole incident to her two sisters-in-law.”
