According to the Unnao superintendent of police Harish Kumar, a team of seven people is believed to have abducted the woman on Saturday. The quest to find and arrest the others is ongoing. He also said that the arrested had been interrogated about their whereabouts, as reported by Hindustan Times.

Even more, shocking was the fact that the men turned a deaf ear to the woman as she pleaded to let her go.
