Woman employee gang-raped in Agra homestay, 5 arrested: Police

New Delhi/IBNS: Five people, including four men, have been arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a woman in Uttar Pradesh's Agra, police said Sunday.

Three other suspects are currently on the run.

In disturbing videos shared online, the rape survivor is seen crying and hyperventilating as she is huddled against the railing of a balcony on the ground floor of a house.

"I have four daughters... they are all very young... please save me..." she cries at the person filming the video.

A few other men can be seen in the background but it is unclear if any of them are among the arrested or accused. "See what they did to me," she could be heard in tears, pointing to torn and stained clothes.

The woman then repeatedly hits her head and grabs her hair to show how she was assaulted.

A voice offscreen then asks if she can name her assaulters.

She responds, "Ritu... Riya... Lalita... Sonu... Vikram. Lock them all up. They are all in the sex work... they called me and they are blackmailing me."

In another, and more disturbing, video, the woman is being dragged out of a room by an unknown man, who also tried to cover her mouth as she screamed.

According to the police, the woman was an employee of a guest house and had been working there for nearly 18 months. She told police she had been pushed to engage in sex work in return for more money and, on Saturday night, had been told to come to the guest house.

She was then reportedly forced into sex acts against her will.

According to her, after this, and as she was leaving, the guest house owners reportedly ordered her to stay the night. She claimed to have been beaten, and hit with a beer bottle, when she refused. The assault and her screams led to a ruckus.
