BHOPAL: A 29-year-old dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped by three friends of her husband in Satna district.

The incident occurred at Pahadigaon village in Maihar tehsil on March 15, and a complaint was filed on Sunday night.

Police said the victim had married a Muslim youth four months ago. She was living alone for the past one month after her husband was arrested and sent to jail in connection with a theft case.

Three accused-Neeraj Puri, 23, Rinku Chaurasia, 27, and Naseer Khan,30, reportedly went to her house on March 15 and promised her that they would get her husband out on bail.

As they were her husband’s friends, she allowed them in and offered tea. As soon as she went inside the kitchen, one of the accused locked the door from inside. Two of them overpowered her and gagged her mouth and another tore her clothes. The three raped her taking turns and also threatened her with dire consequences before leaving the house, said police.

She told her husband after he got out on bail on Sunday. Subsequently, the two went to the Maihar police station and lodged a complaint against the accused.

The victim was sent for medical examination. Police conducted raids and arrested all three of them under Section 376 (2g)(gang rape), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 3/2/5 of the SC/ST Act.
