New Delhi: The Punjab Police on Sunday arrested another accused in connection with the Muktsar rape case, where a woman was dragged out of her officer, kidnapped and then raped last month. The incident was caught on a CCTV camera 

It is the second arrest in the case. Another accused has surrendered before the police on Saturday.

The CCTV footage shows a young man forcibly dragging the 24-year-old woman out of her office in broad daylight on March 25.

In the video, the woman can be seen screaming, shouting for help and struggling to break free from the grip of her abductor.

Tragically, no once came forward to help the poor woman, who was later taken to a farmhouse and raped repeatedly.

Five days after the incident, the woman got an FIR registered in the case.

The video, recorded by a CCTV camera placed in a nearby shop, also shows the victim's colleagues running out later and shouting.
