A woman and a minor girl were allegedly gang-raped in two different incidents in Bihar. A 21-year-old woman was reportedly gang-raped at gunpoint in Motihari district and a pistol and wooden sticks were inserted in her private parts.
The victim who has been admitted to the Motihari Sadar Hospital, remains critical.
According to an ANI report, the victim was going to relive herself in the fields when one of the alleged accused, one Samiullah, molested her and made a video clip of the act. After the victim's mother protested against the incident, the accused along with four male family members barged into the victim's house, dragged her out and gang-raped her.
"They raped me and after that they even beat me. Later their family members came and they also beat me up," News 18 quoted the victim as saying.
The accused reportedly also forced a homemade gun and wooden sticks inside the victim's private parts after which the woman collapsed. She was left naked by the roadside.
"My daughter has been raped. Police came and took her to hospital. As of now the police has done nothing. They have not caught the culprits," the victim's mother said,
