The man who informed the police has told NDTV that when he found the woman, she was unable to speak much, but managed to convey to him and to the police that she was abducted on Wednesday night by three unknown men, who later drugged and raped her. He also said she scribbled three words on the road with a piece of red brick -"Nepal," "rape," and "Kotla Mubarakpur."
