A pregnant teenager lost her baby after she was gang raped by five men.
The 19-year-old’s boyfriend also later took his own life after the vile sex attack.
The couple were attacked by the gang of five who were armed with swords and iron rods in Banswara, western India.
They had been travelling from Banswara town to a nearby village on a bike at around 10pm on July 13.
Three men stopped the couple and attacked the boyfriend, before stealing his phone and forcing him to leave.
Unable to save his girlfriend, he returned to his village and was later found hanging from a tree, according to local reports.
Parbati Lal, the Banswara police district circle officer told a court that the three men, all drunk, took the girl to an isolated spot and gang raped her.
The three accused, named only as Sunil, Vikas and Jitendra, then took her to Sunil’s village, where they called two more of their friends, Naresh and Vijay, who also raped her.
The five men then abandoned the teenager on the side of the road at around 4am on July 14.
She did not report the crime but police later arrested Jitendra when looking into the suicide of her boyfriend.
He had given the dead man’s phone to his wife which police used to trace him.
They discovered the 19-year-old victim had made multiple calls to the phone.
They tracked her down and discovered she was being treated for a miscarriage.
She then reported the case to the police, who registered cases of gang-rape, abduction, and abetment to suicide.
The five men appeared in court yesterday.
