"The 23-year-old woman was kidnapped on January 28 after being given sedative in tea and carried away from Chattarpur village to Parmajhor village, where she was kept in captivity and gangraped by six men for several days, before she managed to flee from their clutches," a police officer said.
The police initially did not register any case. However, after the issue was highlighted by the media, the cops registered a case of gangrape and illegal confinement as late as February 16 against the six men named by the woman.
While the cops continued to delay arresting the culprits, the woman saw one of them walking past the office of the district Superintendent of Police on Sunday.
"Pandit Misra has been put under arrest and we are trying to track down the rest of the five men," a police officer told reporters.
