A case of murder has been filed and the post- mortem report is awaited to confirm rape. One person has been arrested.
The couple was returning home from a brick kiln after work on Saturday evening when the men started harassing the woman. Some overpowered the husband and the others dragged the wife away. Some acid-like substance was also thrown at the husband's face.
He managed to free himself and call neighbours for help. They searched for his wife and found her dead near a pond. She was found semi-naked.
The woman's son said, "She had injuries on her head. They gang-raped and murdered her. My father identified one of them. He has filed a police complaint."
