Assaulting men hit her on exposed chest, shredded her clothing and female accomplice (wife of one of the attackers) forcefully removed any remaining apparel she had on. Neighbours covered her bare body following the ordeal but that aggravation wasn’t enough for quenching aggrieved family’s revenge thirst, they called in more hoodlum reinforcement, who came armed with knives, axes and sticks.

The weaponised group was only able to be dispersed after someone in crowd called police emergency helpline and squad vehicles arrived. Victimised woman, Rasheeda Bibi, then formally filed a case, two members of lawbreaking party were nabbed while two managed to escape, and were at large till the last update.
