Close on the heels of molestation of a girl outside a Guwahati bar, another student from the city was allegedly gang raped in Silchar, police said today.

The first year degree student of Silchar Women's College was going for private tuitions from her hostel when she was forcibly picked up by four persons in a car on the night of August 11.

They took her to the remote Kumbhirgram Airport road and allegedly raped her.

The girl, hailing from Uzan Bazaar area of Guwahati, has filed an FIR with the Silchar police station yesterday naming the four accused including an advocate Dibyendu Jyoti Konwar.

The accused had threatened her of "dire consequences" if she goes to the police but after getting support from her mother and sister, who rushed from Guwahati, they filed the FIR.

Police has launched a manhunt to nab the culprits.
