25-yr-old ‘gang-raped’

A 25-year-old deaf-and-mute woman was allegedly gang-raped at the tribal village of Sirishgora in Purulia’s Bandwan on February 3. The woman, a resident of Pukurkata village, 15km away, had gone to her uncle’s house in Sirishgora to attend the last rites of her grandmother.

The girl’s father lodged a complaint with Bandwan police on Thursday night, following which the accused — Dhiren Mandi, 21, Milan Hansda, 32, and Kaha Hansda (a college student) — have been arrested.

A case of abduction and rape has been started against the three.
