Four men allegedly gangraped a resident of SAS Nagar on Tuesday night. The victim’s sister-in-law, a resident of SAS Nagar, told the police that she, along with the victim, a 20-22 year-old, had gone to meet their relatives at Tipra village, Pinjore, on Tuesday.
Her husband had to come to take them back. By the time, he reached it was already 8 pm. When her husband was taking them back on motorcycle, four men in a white car stopped in front of them at the Pinjore bypass. They allegedly started beating her husband and tried to drag the two women inside the car.
When the husband tried to call the police, they took his phone and motorcycle key and threw them away. While the women kept shouting, they forcibly pushed them in the car. They drove to a secluded place and stopped the car. Two of the
men caught hold of her husband and started beating him, while his wife rushed to save her husband.
As the two men held the husband and wife, the other two allegedly raped the other woman one by one.
