A 30-year-old woman was gangraped by four men in front of her husband and infant son in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Saturday.
The criminals intercepted the family which was on a bike on a deserted stretch of road and dragged them to a sugarcane field. They tied her husband to a tree and threatened to harm their child if they raised an alarm, the victim told the police.
They then took turns to rape the woman.
The attack took place when the victim and her family was on their way back from a doctor’s clinic after a medical check up of their child.
Farmers from a nearby field heard their cries for help and came to their rescue but the four men had escaped by then.
