"My mother, sister, and elder brother had gone to a field to get some grass. My brother went home earlier with a large bundle of grass, while my mother and sister continued to cut them. The women were a little far from each other. Four-five people came from behind, threw my sister's dupatta around her neck, and dragged her inside the bajra field," the lady's sibling told NDTV.
"My mother realized she was missing and went looking for her. My sister was found unconscious. They had raped her. The police did not help us initially... they did not take quick action. They acted only after four-five days," he said.

"We were informed that she would be taken to AIIMS yet she was taken to Safdarjung," one of them told journalists.
"Her condition was very bad. She was found without clothes. Initially, we even wondered if she was bitten by a snake. My mother covered her up and we went to the police and lay her down there. Three bones on her neck were broken. She had difficulty breathing... She needed oxygen right from the beginning. We reached here (Safdarjung Hospital) yesterday," another sibling said.
The Uttar Pradesh police have denied the family's claim from getting no reaction. "This is a very unfortunate incident but we have been proactive in making arrests and helping the family in whatever manner possible. I will personally ensure swift investigation and that these men are tried in a fast track court," Hathras police chief Vikrant Vir had told NDTV in a meeting on Sunday.
