A man was arrested for his involvement in the alleged gangrape of a 22-year-old woman in a posh south Kolkata area, police said Saturday.

According to the complaint, the victim was gangraped by a group of youths in an under-construction site at the Golf Garden area under Jadavpur police station Friday

She was later rescued but the youths managed to flee.

"Sharif Ali Mollah was arrested late on Friday in connection with the incident. He has been remanded to police custody till Aug 27," Deputy Commissioner (Eastern Suburban Division) Sujoy Chanda told IANS.

The woman was first admitted to the state-run M.R. Bangur Hospital and then shifted to the Calcutta National Medical College.
