In a shocking incident on International Women’s Day, a young woman was gang-raped in a bus in Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh. Her 14-day-old infant died after falling from her lap as she tried to escape her tormentors, police said on Tuesday.
An official probing the crime told IANS that a case had been registered against the accused bus driver and conductor, who were on the run.
The incident occurred as she was returning from Sheeshgarh to Sisauna after attending a wedding at her sister’s village and was headed to her village Khajuria late Monday night.
She decided to spend the night at the bus station due to the late hour and rough weather. As she slept in a bus, the two accused overpowered her and raped her, she told police.
