The woman, who gained consciousness on May 28, was in trauma since then and narrated her ordeal to her family members on Saturday, the police said.

The widow had gone to visit the Hanuman temple at Rudawal on May 23 and was returning to her house in the Uchchain police station area on May 25 after spending two nights at her aunt’s house at Rudawal.
She was waiting for a bus near Gehndoli village under Rupwas police station when a man riding a motorcycle offered her lift. The man took her to an agriculture field in a secluded area, where he, along with his two other friends, assaulted her repeatedly.
Family members found her in an unconsciousness state at the agriculture field on May 26 and rushed to the government women’s hospital, from where she was shifted to a private hospital. She came out of the unconsciousness after two days.
The victim narrated her ordeal to her family members on Saturday, following which they approached the police to file a complaint in the matter.
On the basis of the victim’s information, the police have identified Akram Khan of Khanwa under Rupwas police station, Pintu of Mandera village and Raju of Bhatawali village under Kumher police station as suspects in the case.
