The gangrape victim was on Wednesday produced by Habibganj GRP police in the court where she recorded her statement as per Section 164 of CrPC before the Magistrate.
Notably, the 40-year-old, a resident of Budhni, had alleged that one of her acquaintances had arranged her lift on a bike with a man who raped her midway when she was heading towards Budhni. The accused also roped in four of his friends in the crime and they all gangraped her for about seven hours on November 18.

Meanwhile, Habibganj GRP arrested the man Gyarsi, who is a security guard, and reportedly sent her on a bike with the prime accused.
Investigating Officer Sub Inspector B L Sen said that the woman had alleged that the men forced her to drink liquor and then raped her taking turns.

However, according to sources Gyarsi has said that the woman had herself claimed that she knows the accused and chose to go with him on a bike.
SI Sen said that they are quizzing Gyarsi of the whereabouts of rest of the accused as no arrest has been made so far in the case. One more suspect has been taken into police custody by Habibganj GRP for quizzing.
