The accused also threatened to kill and bury the woman if she was stopped from raping. Taking the opportunity, the victim and her friend escaped and reached their relatives, who admitted the woman to the hospital and informed the police. The woman had told the police that she could not recognize anyone due to lack of light, but heard one of the accused calling the other Vimal.
