The 19-year-old college student was chatting with her boyfriend at an isolated spot in Kancheepuram when the incident occurred.
Couple studied at same college
Police said that the couple studied in the same college and were in a relationship for the past two years. They often met at the remote spot near a private school 3 km from the Bengaluru-Puducherry outer ring road, where local anti-socials can be spotted drinking at night.
The couple came to the same spot around 7 pm on Thursday. They were spotted by two men who were having drinks in the vicinity.
Kanchipuram Deputy superintendent of police P Julius Caesar told TOI that the said men then called up three of their friends to join them.
Accused threatened the woman
Following this, all five men approached the couple.
Three of these individuals held the boyfriend at knifepoint while the other two dragged the woman around hundred metres away.
“The accused told the woman that if she resisted, they would murder and bury both of them,” the police officer added.
The five men then took turns to rape the woman. Since all five were drunk, the couple escaped from the spot after a while.
The woman’s boyfriend informed his uncle, who lives nearby, and the woman was taken to a hospital.
Police made arrests with limited information
Based on a complaint from her father, police registered a case. The couple could not identify the accused clearly as the place had no light and the perpetrators reportedly wore masks.
However, the survivor remembered a particular detail that one of the gang had called another ‘Vimal’.
With this clue, police launched a search and found Vimal Kumar, 25, from the same locality.
During interrogation, Vimal spilt the beans and police nabbed Manikandan, 22, Sivakumar, 20, Vignesh, 22, Thennarasu, 23.
The accused were booked for rape and remanded in judicial custody.
