A 19-year-old girl was gang raped by five men on September 6 in Bhojpur village of Moradabad district in Uttar Pradesh. She was stripped of her clothes and made to walk naked back home. One person has been arrested so far.

According to police, the girl had gone to visit a nearby fair. As she was returning home, five men kidnapped, gang-raped her and then left her naked.
