Local residents said they heard the victim's screams and when they went to the construction site they found her in a near unconscious state. She was gagged and her limbs were tied by the attackers, police said.

The woman was taken to the Calcutta National Medical College and Hospital.  A complaint of rape has been lodged with the local police station.
