Police in Hyderabad, India have arrested six people, including a woman over allegation that they planned the gang rape another woman.
It was gathered that a woman who was furious over her husband’s growing friendship with another woman, hired five men to allegedly rape and assault her husband’s purported lover.
The woman who hired these men is the wife of a civil services aspirant from Gachibowli, an area in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.
Times of India reports that Police in Gachibowli received the complaint on Sunday which was filed by the woman who was the target of the gang rape.
They immediately arrested six people, including the woman who was said to have hired the five men and booked them for gang rape and outraging the modesty of a woman.
The accused persons have been sent to a judicial remand.
The alleged lover had moved into the man’s house and stayed there between October 2021 and February 2022. “While things were initially fine, differences cropped up after the wife suspected her husband of having an affair with the woman,” Gachibowli inspector Suresh said.
“On May 26, the wife (accused in the case) called the victim the victim to her house to speak on the issue. While she arrived there with her parents, the accused asked the victim’s parents to stay outside since she wanted to speak to their daughter in private,” the inspector added.
On entering the house, the victim realised there were five men already present.
“All six pinned her to the ground and gagged her mouth with a cloth. They first beat her up and later, four of five men outraged her modesty. Since the fifth man raped her, it technically amounts to gangrape,” K. Shilpavalli, DCP.
When the victim finally raised her voice for help, her parents rushed in and rescued her. The hired goons had fled by then. They were later identified and nabbed based on confessions of the wife who was first arrested.
