RANCHI: A woman, who was gang raped and phys­i­cally tor­tured by her for­mer hus­band and his friends, died on Fri­day in Jhark­hand's Ja­ma­tra dis­trict, po­lice said.

Her first hus­band, who had in­serted a wooden stick in her pri­vate parts af­ter rap­ing her, has been ar­rested, a po­lice of­fi­cer said.

Find­ing her un­con­scious on Thurs­day, vil­lagers ad­mit­ted her to Naryan­pur Pri­mary Health cen­tre. Po­lice was able to re­con­struct the crime as she re­gained con­scious­ness briefly. She was later re­ferred to Ja­ma­tra Sadar hos­pi­tal where doc­tors de­clared her dead.

“The woman was ab­ducted from a Kali Puja fair by Uday, her first hus­band, and his friends late on Wed­nes­day,” ac­cord­ing to her state­ment to the po­lice.

A search is on to ar­rest the other ac­cused, said Jam­tara Sub Divi­sional Of­fi­cer B.N. Singh.

The vic­tim had gone to Pabia vil­lage to watch a San­thali pro­ces­sion taken out on the Kali Puja night. Uday was also present there.
