On Tuesday, sketches of the three accused of gang raping a woman were released by the police.

A 22-year-old woman was travelling to her parents’ house in Khandsa village around midnight on May 29 with her infant daughter when she was gangraped by the three men. The accused threw her nine-month-old daughter out of the auto rickshaw, leading to her death.

The victim, who was not identified, told the police that the accused started molesting her as soon as she sat in the auto rickshaw.

When the woman started shouting, the infant began crying. The three men threw the girl child out of the auto rickshaw and took turns to rape her.

The woman filed her complaint a couple of days after the incident at the Manesar Police Station.
