In a shocking incident, a college girl has alleged that she was abducted at gunpoint by a group of four boys and then forcefully taken to an apartment and raped by two. The incident took place on January 6 at GB mall in Boring Road, Patna when the girl had gone shopping.
The victim has lodged an FIR and named 2 people, Sandip Mukhiya and Vinayak Singh as the main accused, who along with two others abducted her at gunpoint in a white sedan.
The victim while narrating the incident at the women police station in Patna stated, "I was standing near Boring road, then all of a sudden 4 boys came and abducted me at gunpoint and took me in a white car. They took me to an apartment and two boys raped me. They made a video of the incident and threatened me, that if I told this to anyone then they would release the video. Their names are Vinayak Singh and Sandeep Mukhiya. Somehow I managed to escape and informed my brother and then filed an FIR in the woman police station. Medical examination has been done."

Recently, there has been a rise in rape cases in Bihar. Last month a 5-year-old girl was raped by an autorickshaw driver in Darbhanga district and a college-going girl was raped in Patna. The incident has raised a question mark on the law and order situation in Bihar.
