TOI reports, according to the survivor's account, the more she resisted the more they tortured her and her husband. The gang rape went on for almost 3 hours.

The FIR said that they made a video recording on the incident and threatened he victims that hey would kill them if they complain to the police. The couple alleged that the accused threatened them and demanded money using the 11 videos they took.

The victim's husband said that he had met the Alwar SP on April 30 and not on May 2, as police had claimed earlier. "I was scared about our honour, so, I avoided going to the police. I met the SP on April 30. On his order, the police acted the next day but FIR was lodged on May 2. Back then, they said they were busy with polls and will act after elections," he said.

The SHO allegedly told the victim that he only had three personnel in the police station and the rest were on election duty. The state government shunted out Alwar SP and suspended SHO late Tuesday night, according to TOI.
