The incident came to light a day later on Saturday when the victim lodged a complaint at the Kahnuwan police station.

The victim, a 29-year-old woman, was on her way from her parent’s place in a Pathankot village to her in-law’s house in a village in Gurdaspur, when the bus in which she was travelling did not stop at her in-laws’ village.

Instead the driver and conductor took the bus to Gurdaspur town. 

On reaching Gurdaspur, the driver Daler Singh, along with the conductor Ravi, brought his motorcycle and forcibly took her to some unknown place where five of their friends joined them in raping the woman.

On Saturday, Singh dropped her near her village from where she walked to her house and then approached the police to get her complaint registered.

Gurdaspur’s senior superintendent of police Rajjit Singh said on receiving the complaint from the gang rape victim, the police promptly arrested six of the accused, including the driver and conductor.

The SSP said the accused had confessed to their crime after the arrest. Singh added that district police parties had been deputed to arrest the remaining one accused, who was still at large.
