Despite this two more cases of sexual assault in the state came to the fore on Tuesday.
According to an NDTV report, a 14-year-old was allegedly kidnapped and raped by four men on Sunday in Bareilly. Four auto-rickshaw drivers kidnapped the teen near the station, said Santosh Kumar, a railway police officer.
Another case was of a disturbing phone video being circulated. The video was of a woman being sexually assaulted by two men. The victim’s sister alleged that the woman was gang-raped and the attackers posted the video online.
