A 22-year-old woman in Uttarakhand is battling for her life in a hospital after being gangraped and left with a damaged uterus, other internal injuries and multiple bite marks on her body, police said on Tuesday.

The crime that took place on Sunday has shocked Uttarakhand, which grieved the Delhi gangrape braveheart who had studied physiotherapy in state capital Dehradun.

Police said three men, all in their 20s, allegedly gangraped the woman after spiking her cold drink at a birthday party in Kashipur, an industrial town about 200 kilometres from Dehradun.

The woman is from a neighbouring town and works in a factory. Doctors treating her at a government hospital said her condition was critical.

The doctor in-charge of the hospital said the woman had been brutally assaulted sexually and her uterus was damaged.

He added there were injuries to her internal organs and her upper body had deep bite marks all over.

Initially, she was admitted to the general ward, but shifted to a private ward following the intervention of voluntary organisations.  

Police arrested the accused — Rajendra, Prem Prakash and Kishen Lal, all small-time traders — and produced them in court on Monday.

The court remanded the accused in judicial custody for 14 days.

Police have registered the case on the complaint of the girl’s father.

“We are conducting the necessary forensic tests and DNA samples are also being collected so that the guilty are not spared,” Sanjay Gunjyal, deputy inspector general of police, Nainital Range, said on Tuesday.
