Four men in India's Mumbai allegedly abducted and raped a 25-year-old college student on Thursday (6 July) morning, according to reports.
The girl said she was on her way to college when a car suddenly stopped near her and four men sitting inside it allegedly pulled her in and drove her to a secluded place.
On their way, they kept telling her "we asked you to stay away from him"; however, it is not yet clear who they were referring to.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, the alleged crime took place in Charkop area. Officials have refused to share any information about the complaint. The woman is believed to have told the police that she knows all the four alleged rapists, the report adds.
A case against the men has been registered under sections 376 (punishment for rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). "No arrests have been made so far. The investigation is underway," senior police inspector Vijay Bhalshankar told the Asian Age.
According to reports, officials have also formed teams to record statements of eye-witnesses to put together a thorough and confirmed series of events. They have also started checking the CCTV footage of the areas, which the woman claimed the men took to reach the secluded spot.
"We are verifying the car number and also checking the CCTV footages. Some people related to the victim are also being questioned regarding the incident," a police officer said.
Meanwhile, in another incident, a 64-year-old man was arrested by the Gurugram city police for raping his five-year-old granddaughter.
The accused was held with his 59-year-old wife, who has also been charged with abetting rape and hiding it from the victim's mother. The duo was trying to flee to London when a three-member team of Gurgaon Police nabbed them after a tip-off from the immigration authorities.
