On the basis of the victim’s statements, an FIR has been registered against Mahender, 23, and his three unidentified accomplices under sections 352 (assault or criminal force otherwise than on grave provocation), 376D (rape), 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code and under relevant sections of the SC/ST Act.

According to police, Mahender was known to the woman and is from her own village under Jewar police station. A search operation is underway to nab Mahender and other suspects, they said.

“Police took the victim to the primary health centre in Jewar for medical treatment, but later she was referred to the district hospital.
