Gaya: A DNA test would be conducted to ascertain the involvement of suspects in the Gaya gangrape case, where a group of armed men tied a man to a tree and raped his wife and 15-year-old daughter, police said.
The family was stopped while they were passing through a deserted area on a motorcycle, near Sondiha village in Gaya, police said.
Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), CID, Binay Kumar said that evidence was being gathered for investigation into the case.
“The police would conduct DNA test of victims’ clothes and other evidence collected from the site and match them with the accused in order to ascertain involvement”, the ADG said.
