The survivor's husband said people from his village in UP had advised him to take his wife to a priest in Bihar whose medicines, they claimed, work as magic were a sure shot way to the birth of a male child.

Accordingly, the couple arrived at BrhamBaba temple in the village on Sunday evening. "It was getting late so we decided to stay back for the night at the Tantrik’s ‘adda’. While in sleep, some five to six men threw a piece of cloth on my mouth which left me unconscious. After that they took turns to rape my wife," her husband said.

The couple approached the police on Monday morning and an FIR was lodged.
