Kolkata: Kolkata Police on Tuesday detained three cab drivers for allegedly raping a 24-year-old woman in a moving car in the city's posh satellite town Salt Lake's sector-V.
The fourth accused, who is on the run, has also been identified and a manhunt has been launched to nab him, a news18 report stated.
According to media reports, the deceased, originally from Nepal, performs at a dance bar on VIP road, which connects to the airport. On Sunday midnight, the girl had gone to a multiplex at Sector-V to meet a friend and was waiting on the road for transport when the alleged rapists in a vehicle stopped in front of her and offered her a lift to her destination.
