In what can be termed as a heinous crime, a gang of highway robbers dragged and raped four women in a field for hours and shot dead a male relative who was trying to save the women. The crime took place on the Yamuna Expressway in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Budh Nagar early on Thursday.
As per reports, eight members of a family were travelling to Bulandshahr from Greater Noida’s Jewar when they were stopped by the gang at about 1:30 am. The group of six looted cash and valuables from the family and raped the female travellers.
