Guntur: In yet another horrific crime against women in Andhra Pradesh, a woman was allegedly gang-raped by four persons near Medikonduru crossroads in Guntur district on Wednesday night.

A couple from Sattanapalle mandal was returning on a motorbike after attending a wedding in Guntur city on Wednesday night when they were intercepted by some thugs who threatened the couple with weapons.

The four attacked the woman's husband and tied his hands and legs. They then took the woman to a nearby field and raped her. The couple went to the Sattenapalli police station at midnight but the police refused to register a complaint.

The police said the incident took place under the Guntur Urban police limits but they had come to the Guntur Rural station. The Sattenapally police have come under severe criticism for refusing to lodge a complaint despite orders from superiors to register a zero FIR wherever the incident takes place and transfer the case to the concerned police station.

Later, the police registered a case and DSP Prasanthi visited the crime spot. The woman was shifted to the government hospital for medical tests. She also said that the gang stole her gold ornaments. The police have formed a special team to identify and nab the accused persons.
