They had attacked her with a beer bottle, wounding her severely and left her there naked. With help of CCTV footages, the police managed to identify and arrest them. According to the police, the accused who were arrested are Subhash Kumar Mohanpuria (24), a resident of Shyam Nagar – III in Sanganer.
