Patna: A 24-year-old pregnant woman was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by three persons while she was on a stroll at a locality under the Beur police station area in Patna on late Saturday night. Two of the accused arrested  were identified as Vishal Kumar (21) and Ankit Kumar (19). However, another accused Shyam Kumar is absconding.

The woman had repeatedly requested the accused to set her free. After the incident, she urged them to help her board a train to Lakhisarai and the two of them took her to the railway station. One of the accused had gone to a purchase ticket when she was spotted crying by the passengers at platform number 10 of Patna Junction around 4 AM on Sunday after which they informed the government rail police (GRP).

The GRP informed the Women’s police station around 6 AM. Women’s police station SHO Kishore Shahchari said, “The three gagged her mouth so that she couldn’t scream. They forcibly took her to a nearby secluded place where the trio raped her. The SHO said the victim is 6 months pregnant. Her husband and other family had started searching for her after she didn’t return home from the stroll,” Shahchari added.

The SHO said the woman’s medical examination will be completed by today after which her statement will be recorded before a judicial magistrate. “The accused are also from the same locality. Raids are on to nab Shyam,” the SHO added.
