Kolkata: Ten people have been arrested for allegedly gang-raping a 32-year-old-woman and assaulting her husband in the industrial township of Durgapur in Burdwan district, police said on Tuesday.
"We have arrested 10 people of which five have supposedly raped the woman. We are looking for five to six more suspects. They have been produced before a court and we have sought for their custody," Commissioner of Police (Asansol-Durgapur) Ajay Kumar Nand said.
The accused all work in a printing press in the city from where several Bengali dailies including Communist Party of India- Marxist (CPI-M) mouthpiece Ganashakti are printed.
