On April 26, five men had forcefully stopped a woman and her husband riding on a motorcycle on the Alwar-Thanagazi highway and dragged them to an isolated area.
The five men stripped their clothes off, attacked the husband and raped the woman in front of him. They also filmed the incident and threatened to share it on social media demanding money.
It was later found that the girl belonged to a Dalit background. The five accused were arrested by the Rajasthan police in May.
The incident played an instigator for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to campaign against the Congress in Rajasthan and paint them in a negative colour stating negligence or lack of action.
