Hyderabad: A 30-year-old tribal woman in Telangana was allegedly gang-raped for three days by her employer and his friends for demanding pending wages while her husband was tied up in an adjacent room and physically assaulted.

The accused allegedly took the couple in a car to a building where they were separated and kept in two rooms. Prasad was joined by three other men who allegedly raped the woman for three days.
The couple managed to escape on September 21 but made their way back to the poultry farm seeking payment. Prasad then allegedly threatened to kill the couple if they revealed anything to the police.
However, on September 26, the couple managed to file a First Information Report (FIR) with the Pahadi Shareef police station. The woman has suffered injury marks all over her body during assault. "The woman has undergone a medical test and we are awaiting results," the report quoted Sunpreet Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Rachakonda.
