The woman, who had been staying with her brothers in Mumbai, was on her way back to their house from a friend’s birthday party. On July 14, her brothers had called their parents in Jalna, saying the woman was unwell and appeared to be suffering a paralytic stroke.
A medical examination confirmed sexual assault and injuries to her head and face sustained when she tried to fight back, said police. A senior police official said that the arrested accused and two other youths allegedly took her to a secluded area by force, and gangraped her.
"The earlier submitted list of 35 police personnel were examined thoroughly and it was found that some of the police personnel, who made it to the list, were not part of operational jobs, including conducting raids and arresting the accused,” said a senior police officer.
