The son of a BJP leader in Chhattisgarh was arrested on Monday for his alleged involvement in the gang-rape of a woman on October 11 in Pirda village.

Two of the accused, Farid Ali from Pirda and Devendra Choudhury of Brahmanpuri, were arrested on Sunday. The third arrested is Prince Saluja, son of Jasvindra Singh Jassi, a zonal BJP leader.

According to police, the victim, a cook in a school, had stepped out with a relative when the accused abducted her in a Ford Ecosport car.

The trio gang-raped her and then dumped her on the Raipur-Basna road. Police said that they also made a video of her and threatened to make it viral.

Chhattisgarh chief minister Raman Singh, taking note of the incident, had directed Mahasamund police to take stern action against the culprits.
