A 23-year-old woman was allegedly abducted on Wednesday from the Jhakarkati bus stop in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh and raped by five people in a moving car, police said.

The woman had reached Kanpur from Ahmedabad and had gone to the bus stop early morning to take a bus for her village in Hamirpur, station house officer Unnao police station Arvind Singh said.

She was walking on the road, when an SUV approached her and two youths, hailing from her native village, offered her a ride, he said.

There were three more men inside the vehicle who pulled the woman inside and drove off, the official added.

The woman was raped by the men and thrown at a secluded place in Unnao, Singh said.

She was taken to a district hospital where doctors confirmed the sexual assault, he said.

A case has been registered on charges of abduction and gang rape, he said, adding that investigation into the matter was on and efforts were being made to establish the identities of the accused who have not been arrested so far.
