THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The police doubts conspiracy in the gang rape of a woman here in Kadinamkulam. In her statement, the victim said her husband received money from Rajan, one of the accused.

The 25-year-old woman was allegedly forced to drink liquor by her husband and gang-raped by four of his friends in front of their five-year-old child near here. Police said they will file another case against the accused under the POCSO Act for abusing the woman in front of her child.

All of them were taken into custody on Friday, a day after the incident, and the arrest was recorded after the woman gave her statement, police said

The child is suspected to have been beaten up by the accused. The police are yet to nab another accused.

The woman told police that her husband had taken her and their two children to the beach at nearby Puthucurichy on Thursday and later to a friend's house nearby, where she was forcefully fed alcohol and sexually assaulted in front of her elder son.

"The woman was rescued by a young man who found her in an inebriated state along the road. He took her in his car to her home and then informed police about the incident," a police officer said.

The man later told some television channels that she was crying, had injuries on her face, and pleaded for help.

Police have recorded the statement of the woman, who was admitted to a government hospital here and later discharged.
