Kolkata, July 13 (IANS) A young housewife was dragged out of a train in Bihar and allegedly raped by some miscreants on way to her in-laws’ place here, the city police said Sunday. The woman, who lives at her in-laws’ place in Narkeldanga of North Kolkata, was returning by train Friday with a eight-month-old son after a short visit to her parental home in Bihar’s Seikhpura district.
“She has lodged a complaint that three youths living close to her parental house followed her into the train and dragged her out at Kiule station. She was taken to a house and raped. She became unconscious,” said Deputy Commissioner (Central) of city police Ajay Ranade.
On regaining consciousness, the woman took the Danapur Express and returned to Kolkata.
“She informed her husband, an employee in a shoe company, of her plight Saturday. He admitted her to the Calcutta Medical College and Hospital, where the doctors asked her to file a complaint,” Ranade said.
A first information report has been lodged at the Bowbazar police station.
Ranade said though the incident occurred in Bihar, the city police were taking the matter very seriously considering the nature of the crime.
“We will send an investigating team to Bihar and file a case in the court there. Then we will hand over the case to the Bihar police,” he said.
The woman is being treated at a hospital here.
