A 23-year-old newlywed woman has alleged that she was gangraped by her father-in-law, brother-in-law, nephew of her husband and the matchmaker in Hanumangarh of Rajasthan. She claimed that the accused used to give her intoxicating pills.
However, the mother of the victim went to Rajasthan after she suspected something fishy and rescued her from her husband’s house. After reaching Ludhiana, the victim filed an FIR against the accused. The Sahnewal Police lodged a zero FIR and sent it to the Hanumangarh police for further action.
