With news of yet another pair of horrific incidents, the recent spate of gangs attacking and raping women on buses in India is now a trend. Only, with the introduction of injected drugs, an abduction, pornography and the victim being thrown out of a moving car, the methods of this latest gang are somewhat more horrific. It all began in Punjab's Moga district when the gang encountered the woman on a bus. The Times of India describes the ensuing incident in hair-raising detail:
After [the 26-year-old woman] got down at Sector 43 bus terminal an unknown person came to her asking for an address. Before she could say anything, she was dragged into a car where there was another woman and a man. They gagged her and injected her with some drug after which she fell unconscious.
When she woke up, she saw four men in a room and one of them was filming her in the nude. When she screamed she was drugged again. She alleged that she was gang-raped by the men. She was thrown out of a car around 5.30pm on Sunday on the Bathinda-Dabawali road.
The woman survived the tumble and is being treated at a local hospital. It so far unknown what else happened to her in the 48-plus hours that she was being held by her attackers.
Disturbingly enough, that wasn't the only gang rape reported in India over the weekend. A girl in Nagpur was raped by a gang of armed dacoits on Friday night after they tried to rob several houses in the village but failed find anything of value. Angry and empty-handed they came upon an 18-year-old girl whom they pinned down and raped at least twice. She escaped and was founded running naked down the road by a neighbor. Police say they've identified some of the culprits and are in the process of bringing them in.
