According to a complaint registered at Santrampur police station, the complainant claimed that two men residing in her village had raped her multiple times after threatening to kill her children.
According to officials at Santrampur police station, the complainant has said that the two accused first threatened to kill her children about two weeks ago, if she did not obey their instructions. “The woman said that the accused took her to one of their homes and raped her.
