A 38-YEAR-OLD woman was allegedly raped on a private bus in Indore by three men,including the driver and the cleaner,on Friday.
The woman had boarded the bus from Dewas for Indore. She alleged that after other passengers got off,the bus was taken to a secluded spot under Rajkumar bridge where she was raped.
Additional SP Ramji Shrivastava said the police have arrested the driver Jahid,conductor Lala and Rajesh and collected DNA samples while the woman was subjected to medical examination.
The victim had first told the Vijay Nagar police she was molested by Rajesh who sat next to her. The complaint was later transferred to Tukoganj Police Station,where the FIR said she was gangraped.
Shrivastava said the police were probing the charges in the FIR and not concerned with what the victim had claimed initially.
The police have seized the vehicle owned by a private operator. Another police officer said the woman first said she had a fight with her husband,a labourer,and had left Indore in a fit of rage. The officer claimed the husband denied having fought with her.
