The girl in her complaint alleged of knowing one of the two abductors, whom she had met a few weeks ago at a wedding ceremony and claimed that she felt unconscious because the duo had put a cloth on her mouth and it was then when she was sexually molested while the vehicle roamed along different streets of Rajarhat area, a police officer said.

She also claimed that the duo then pushed her out of the cab near Chinar Park area at around 3.30 AM when she asked a police patrolling van to help her reach home.
