The woman was raped in Kamlapur area on April 15. She told the police that he then called his friend Maan Singh to join them and they took her to their other friend Meraj's house.

In November past year, the woman's father was accused by the village panchayat of having an illicit relationship with his daughter.

Meraj, aged in his early forties, was arrested on Tuesday but Maan Singh and the woman's father went on the run and are yet to be apprehended. The girl was kept at Meraj's house for next 18 hours after which she managed to escape the house.
