Three of the five accused were arrested in the Rohtak gangrape case on Tuesday. Haryana director general of police KP Singh disclosed this in Chandigarh.

The arrests were made after social organisations and political parties raised voice against the increasing cases of rapes and gangrapes in the state and poor functioning of the police.

Singh said while the accused Amit, Jagmohan and Sandeep had been arrested, the fourth accused was on the run and the identity of the fifth was yet to be ascertained.

The DGP said it was the police and not the passers-by who found the victim lying near Sukhpura chowk, Rohtak, unconscious. The police took her to the hospital and registered a case the next day on the basis of her complaint against Mausam and Akash, besides the three named above.
