New Delhi: In a deeply disturbing incident, a video has gone viral in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao - which has attracted unwanted attention due to crimes against women in the recent past - in which three men can be seen molesting a woman in a forested area.
The woman was taken from her home to a secluded area in order to molest her.
The Gangaghat Police have arrested two men, Rahul and Akash, and are on the lookout for others. The six accused in the video have been identified as Pawan, Vipin, Vimal, Ritik, Rahul and Akash.
In the video, the victim could be seen pleading with the men, “Bhaiyya aisa mat karo (Brother, do not do this)”. The men, however, ignored her pleas and continued their vile act and threatened to make the video clip viral.
"Video from Unnao in which three men are molesting a woman has gone viral. We are trying to find the source of the video. Our team is working on it... It is yet to be ascertained that how old is the video. Also we will try to take the statement of the woman after due permission from the magistrate," said Anoop Singh, Superintendent of Police, North Unnao.
Last month, a nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 25-year-old man in Unnao.
In April, a 16-year-old girl from Unnao had accused a BJP lawmaker of raping her about a year ago.
The case came to light when the victim tried to immolate herself outside the chief minister Yogi Adityanath's house, but the police registered a case against Kuldeep Singh Sengar only when a decision was taken to transfer the probe to the CBI.
