A 20-year-old woman, who was found unconscious in a train on way to Bhopal, has said that she was gangraped by four persons outside the Kalyan railway station in Maharashtra.

"In her statement, she said that she suffered from health issues, particularly, excruciating ache in the head and that a person (client) who often came to her, took her on the pretext of getting her treated. However, he took her to Kalyan, where she was gang raped at a desolate spot and later left in a train", said a police official at the GRP police station in Bhopal.
The victim was admitted to hospital in Bhopal. With the help of a social worker who knows Bengali, the police recorded her statement in multiple sittings. The police said that the woman barely 19-20 year old but is extremely wea to Bhk.
The incident had occurred on May 11, and after reaching Bhopal, she was admitted to Bhopal. When she gained consciousness on Tuesday, the police began recording her statement.
