Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A woman fought back three men, who tried to rape her Karbala park on VIP road on Wednesday night.

Koh-e-fiza police station house officer (SHO) Brijendra Marskole said that the 24-year-old complainant earlier used to work at a hospital and came into contact with a liftman working there named Vivek Dhakad.

Late on Wednesday night, the woman stepped out of her house to buy groceries and stumbled across Dhakad. The man told her that he needed to speak to her regarding something important and took her to Karbala park.

The duo were talking when Dhaka’s two friends, named Sudhir and another unidentified man, came there. The tree men then dragged the woman to the bushes, but she fought back and began screaming. Petrified, the accused fled the spot.

The woman then approached the police and lodged a complaint against the accused trio. The cops have launched a manhunt to nab the trio.
