Slowly she also started taking drugs as he lured her into this menace and later on she met another person Sonu who was drug peddler and then she became part of the drug peddling racket of the area.

As she left her house so she took on rent a room in the house of one Siri who was Sonu's friend. On October 10 Siri threw a birthday party at his place and invited his friends and then they gang-raped her in the nearby fields with loud music thus her cries for help went unheard.

The victim ran from there and took shelter in the house of one Satpal Singh in Dayalpur village who was her acquaintance. But there also to her horror she was gang-raped by Satpal and three of his friends Sukhwinder Singh, Ravinder Singh and Kulwinder Singh.

All the three accused work as security guards in a local industrial unit, said police sources. Somehow the victim managed to return back to her rented accommodation in the morning.
