The woman lodged a complaint on 5 March against the six youths, SHO Mahila police station, Baran Anis Ahamed said.

The victim, in her complaint, alleged that around a month ago, when she reached Baran to visit her in-laws' family, one of the accused, Chetan Meena (21), who was also familiar to her, took her on his motorbike to an isolated place near Samaspura village on the pretext of dropping her to her destination.

Five others joined Meena and they took turns to rape her, the victim said, alleging that the accused also filmed the crime on mobile.

They dropped her near her in-laws' house the next day and threatened to kill her family members if she disclosed the matter to others.

She could gather the courage to file a police complaint only after she came to know that the video had been uploaded on the internet and was being circulated throughout the area, the SHO said.

The victim's statement would be recorded before a magistrate on Monday, the SHO said.

Further investigation into the matter has been handed over to the DSP, Baran, the SHO added.
