An 18-year-old newlywed woman was allegedly gang-raped by seven men on the night of Saturday, January 17 in Bhithali village of Shinor taluka, India.

According to The Times of India, the seven men barged into the house where the newly wed was sleeping with her family and dragged her to an open field nearby. The men each took turns to rape the 18-year-year old girl.

The woman had migrated to Bhithali few days ago with her husband and in-laws in search of work. The family was employed by a farm owner in the village to do labour work in the fields.

Shinor police sub-inspector, JM Waghela told The Times of India that the woman was dragged to an isolated place in the fields by the accused and was later found about 1.5 km far from her dwelling.

The police were called by the farm owner after her husband ran to inform him.  "The accused had their faces covered and threatened to kill them before they abducted the woman and gang-raped her. The family is in state of shock," Waghela said.  

According to the complainant, the seven men are between the ages of 25 and 30.

The 18-year-old is currently being treated at the SSG Hospital.
