A 26-year-old nurse was abducted, gang-raped and thrown out of a car in Punjab on Sunday.

The victim, who hails from Landeke village in Moga district, was admitted in the Bathinda civil hospital. She was reported to be in a very critical condition.

In a statement given to Paramjeet Singh, SHO of Bathinda's Rama Mandi police station, the girl said that she had come to Chandigarh to attend a job interview at Sector 34 hospital. As soon as she got down at the bus terminal on Friday an unknown person approched her asking for an address. Before she could reply, she was forcibly taken into a car where two people including a woman were seated. She was then drugged by them.

On regaining consciousness, she found herself in a room along with four men who were making a video clip of her in the nude. When she tried to scream for help the gang sedated her again.

Later on Sunday, the group dragged the semi-conscious victim to a car and then dumped her on Bathinda-Dabawali road at around 5.30 pm.

The victim was rushed to the hospital by a car driver, Rohitas Kumar after he found her lying in serious condition.

The girl alleged that she was raped by the gang and her medical report has confirmed sexual assault.

The DSP of Bathinda, Gurmeet Singh Kingra, said that police have filed a case and are on the lookout for the offenders.

Sunday's gang-rape incident comes at a time when the state is facing criticism for the Patiala gang-rape and suicide case in which a minor had killed her self after police failed to take action against the accused who sexually absued her on Dec 26.
