JALANDHAR: A 24-year-old Jalandhar woman was gan­graped twice within hours on the in­ter­ven­ing night of Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day in vil­lages in Ka­purthala. Four pri­vate se­cu­rity guards, Sat­pal Singh of Dhudike; Sukhwinder Singh of Hoshiarpur; Ravin­der Singh of Gur­daspur and Kul­winder Singh Ma­jitha, at a pri­vate mill in Hamira vil­lage, have been ar­rested for gan­grap­ing her at Dyalpur vil­lage.

Of re­main­ing six ac­cused, who gang-raped the vic­tim at the tube-well mo­tor room in Lakhan Khele vil­lage, two have been iden­ti­fied. They are Jasvir Singh, alias, Shree, and Sonu, both res­i­dents of Lakhan Khele.

“Sonu got me hooked to drugs and also got me into smug­gling of con­tra­band. Later, I cam in con­tact with Shree and stayed with him for three months,” the vic­tim states in the FIR.

“On the in­ter­ven­ing night of Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day, Shree took me to the mo­tor room, where Sonu and his four other friends, had al­ready as­sem­bled. They gan­graped me. Later, I es­caped and met Sat­pal on the way and asked for help,” she adds.
