Jharkhand: Law student abducted and gang-raped at gunpoint in Ranchi, 12 arrested men confess to the crime

A car, bike, two magazines, bullets, pistol, 8 mobile phones and victim's damaged phone were recovered from the accused.

In yet another shocking incident, a 25-year-old law student was abducted and raped by 12 men at gunpoint at a brick kiln near Ranchi. According to reports, all 12 men have been arrested and they have confessed to their crime.

The FIR lodged by the victim at Kanke police station states that the incident happened at around 5.30 pm on November 26. The victim was chatting with her friend near a bus stop in Sangrampur area, in the city outskirts, when two motorcycle-borne men accosted them and abducted the victim at gunpoint after overpowering her friend, police said.

The place from where the victim was abducted, is barely 4km from her law college campus and 10 km from the chief minister’s official residence. The high-security zone also houses the residences of the DGP, chief justice of the Jharkhand high court and the leader of the opposition. The new police lines are also close to the area.

After the bike reportedly ran out of fuel, the two motorcycle-borne men made calls to their friends asking them to come with a car. They then drove to the brick kiln and took turns to rape the woman.
