Kota: In a shocking incident, a 40-year-old woman was gang-raped raped by six men in Rajasthan's Baran district.

The accused also made a video of the crime and shared it on the social media.

According to the Baran police, the crime was committed about a month ago but a complaint was lodged by the victim only five days back.

The victim approached the police and lodged a complaint after she came to know about the video which was being shared on the social media.

''The victim lodged a complaint on March 5 against the six youths,'' SHO Mahila Police Station, Baran Anis Ahamed said.

The Baran police have booked the six persons under Section 376 of the IPC and various Sections of the IT Act but none of the accused has been arrested so far.

The woman works as a labourer at a roadside dhaba in Kota.

In her complaint, the victim alleged that around a month ago, when she reached Baran to visit her in-laws' family, one of the accused, Chetan Meena (21), who was also familiar to her, took her on his motorbike to an isolated place near Samaspura village in pretext of dropping her to her destination.

Five others joined Meena and they took turns to rape her, the victim said, alleging that the accused also filmed the crime on mobile.

They dropped her near her in-laws' house the next day and threatened to kill her family members if she disclosed the matter to others.

She could gather the courage to file a police complaint only after she came to know that the video had been uploaded on the internet and was being circulated throughout the area, the SHO said.

The victim's statement would be recorded before a magistrate on Monday, the SHO said.

Further investigation into the matter has been handed over to the DSP, Baran, the SHO added.
