Tribal woman gang-raped in West Bengal

A shocking rape case has been reported from West Bengal that has eerie similarities to the 16 December Nirbhaya gang-rape case that took place in the national capital in 2012.
As per reports, several unidentified men gang-raped and physically assaulted a tribal woman near Kushmandi. The victim, who was admitted to hospital in a critical condition, had sustained injuries on her private parts. ANI reported that the victim was a person with disabilities. The woman was rescued after local villagers nearby heard her cries.
Adibashi Samaj and Lok Shilpi Platform president Budhan Hembrom said if the accused are not arrested and punished, they will start a mass agitation.
While police have detained one suspect for interrogation, they have yet to figure out how many men were involved in the crime.
