Moved by her courage, on Monday, the survivor picked out five suspects from a line-up of 40. It led to the arrest of five more suspects, two of whom are minors. They have been charged with gang rape and attempted murder.

According to the woman's statement, she was walking home with a male friend on the highway on September 5 2017 when 10 men rape her around 5.30pm, and started molesting her.

She says she and her friend ran in different directions to escape but the attackers split up and chased them.

Five of them ran after her, and dragged her into the forest where they took turns to rape her, beating her all the while for resisting.

She was on the verge of losing consciousness when the other five men returned — having failed to nab her friend — and vent all their wrath on her. She was again beaten and raped repeatedly. The two minors were in the second group.

The horror went on into nightfall. She lost consciousness, and realizing that the rapes had stopped but the beating was getting worse.

The eight men and two boys dragged her to the edge of a waterfall and threw her over the edge. There she lay, in the water and weeds, for over 10 hours.

She later told police that thick grass cushioned her fall. She survived until night and it was only towards the next afternoon that she managed to drag herself up.
