Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Police on Thursday arrested one person out of the three for allegedly gang-raping a lady at the King George’s Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow.
The other two are still absconding.
The accused have been identified as liftman Vinay, Santosh and Shivkumar (arrested), reported a news agency.
The victim, hailing from Hardoi, was accompanying her husband, who had been admitted at the KGMU. At around 10:30 pm on Wednesday, she was approached by the liftman, who took her to his room on the pretext of bringing food for her. The other two accomplices were already present. The trio made her a hostage and allegedly gang-raped her.
The woman then filed a complaint and police are making all their efforts to nab rest of the accused.
The incident took place just a few days after a video showing a group of men heckling and harassing two women in Rampur went viral on social media.
