PATNA: A middle-aged woman was gang-raped by a group of youths while she was taking a holy dip in river Ganga as part of a religious Hindu ritual on Tuesday morning.
According to reports in the local media, the woman was taking bath near Jal Govind village in Barh locality of Patna district when a youth came near her in the water and dragged her out of it.
She made fervent appeals to him to let her go saying she is observing fast, urged him to consider the sanctity of Mother Ganga and as a last resort addresses him as a brother but her appeals fail to move him.
Finally, she was dragged out of the river, taken to a lonely place and is raped by the youth while another one shoots the entire acts in his mobile.
The second youth soon takes turn to rape her.
The police have arrested two persons in this connection.
RJD legislator and Bihar opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav condemned the incident in strongest-possible words and hit out at the Nitish Kumar government for failing to check crime in the state.

“मुझे छोड़ दो,मैंने आज सहा (व्रत किया) है।” बिहार मे जितिया था, और बच्चो की लंबी उम्र के लिये व्रत करने वाली एक माँ का दुष्कर्म हुआ। बेहद शर्मनाक अनैतिक बाबू!https://t.co/cvQGU5Kd64
