According to primary information, the criminals held the family (four men and four women) hostage and allegedly molested and raped the women. The criminals also shot a person dead after he raised objection against the crime. In a similar incident at the National Highway passing through Bulandshahr last year, a car was stopped by criminals and dragged a 13-year-old girl and her mother out and raped them in a nearby field. The girl, along with her family, was going to a funeral late on July 29, when armed men stopped their car, tied and beat up the men and gang- raped the girl and her 35-year-old mother for almost three hours.
