A 22-year-old woman in Haryana’s Panchkula has alleged that she was raped by 40 men after being held captive in a guest house for four days when she went to find a job, police said today.
In a complaint lodged with the Chandigarh Police on Thursday, she alleged that she was held captive in a guest house in the Morni Hills from July 15 to 18 where the accused took turns to rape her.
She has alleged that one of the accused was known to her husband and had promised to give her a job at the guest house, the police said.
The woman’s husband told reporters that she was promised job at the guest house by a person known to them, adding she was drugged for four days, raped and threatened that she and her husband would be “eliminated” if she revealed the incident to anyone.
Every day, about 10 men would brutalise her and this continued for four days between July 15 and 18. Then she somehow managed to call me over phone and told me that she was in great trouble. I spoke to the guest house manager and told him to leave her or else I would call the police. My wife later reached home and narrated the ordeal after which we lodged a police complaint,” he said.
The police have arrested two guest house staffs in the connection, Station House Officer of Manimajra Police Station Ranjit Singh said, adding a case has been registered and further investigations are under progress.
