Even as the country is coming to terms with Unnao rape case, another case of alleged sexual crime against a woman from Uttar Pradesh has surfaced.
The incident came to light after a video of the woman being allegedly sexually assaulted by two men in Kannauj’s Samdhan district of Uttar Pradesh appeared on social media, following which the rape survivor’s family has said that if the accused are not arrested, they will all commit suicide.
As per NDTV news report, the accused have been identified as Talib and Salman. They are residents of the same locality, where the victim and her family lives.
The alleged sexual assault took place after the woman had gone to a well to fetch water. She did not inform her family about the assault fearing slander from the community.
