On the fateful day, the woman was going with her husband on a motorcycle when the accused stopped them and took them behind a sand dune on the roadside. They thrashed the woman's husband, tied him up and raped her in front of him.

The couple was held captive for nearly three hours before being let go in the evening. A sixth accused shot a video of the incident and later circulated it on social media.

Initially, the couple kept quiet but the accused called up the husband and demanded money, threatening to upload the video on social media.

The husband then narrated the incident to family members and lodged a police complaint on April 30.
