NEW DELHI On the basis of video that has gone viral, Bihar police are frantically looking for four men laughing and sexually assaulting a woman even as she is begging them to let her go while one of their friends is recording the act. But it is not clear as to where and when the incident happened and who the culprits are, said media reports.

Based on the language (Magahi) used by the men — which shows Magadh region comprising Gaya, Jehanabad, Aurangabad, and Arwal districts— the state police headquarters, on receiving the video on WhatsApp on Friday (11.05.2018), directed Gaya Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajiv Mishra to lodged an FIR and launch a drive to nab the suspects.

Patna zone Inspector General of police Nayyar Hasnain Khan was quoted in a media report saying that a zero FIR was lodged in the Kotwali police station of Gaya on May 11 in connection with the video.

The video surfaced close on the heels of another video of a minor girl being disrobed by youths in a village in Gaya’s neighbouring Jehanabad district on April 29. Police had arrested all the 13 culprits, including eight minors, seen in the Jehanabad video.
