Bi­jnor: In a chill­ing re­minder of the 2016 Bu­land­shahr gan­grape, a cou­ple re­turn­ing home on an e-rick­shaw was way­laid by armed as­sailants who dragged the 25-year-old woman in a nearby field and gan­graped her in front of her hus­band. The crime was com­mit­ted in UP’s Am­roha on Satur­day. The sur­vivor told the po­lice that the as­sailants also shot at her hus­band when he tried to re­sist them. Based on their com­plaint, an FIR has been reg­is­tered and po­lice are comb­ing the area in search of suspects.

Ac­cord­ing to the sur­vivor, they were on their way back to Am­roha’s Kuakhera vil­lage from Bi­jnor’s Chand­pur where they had gone to see a doc­tor. “My hus­band and I were re­turn­ing from Chand­pur on Satur­day evening in an e-rick­shaw. When we reached close to Kuakheto a nearby field and gan­graped me at gun­point. When my hus­band re­sisted, they shot him in the arm and stabbed him too. When we shouted for help, some passersby and vil­lagers rushed to the scene. Sens­ing the sit­u­a­tion, the ac­cused fled. Later, we in­formed the cops,” she added.

Am­roha SP Vipin Tada said, “We have reg­is­tered a case against ac­cused based on the woman’s com­plaint and detained two. They are be­ing ques­tioned. The woman has been sent for med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion. No bul­let in­jury was found on her hus­band’s arm as claimed. We are prob­ing the case.”
