“Some 15 minutes later, the so-called company supervisor arrived on his bike. He lured me to ride on his two-wheeler. But instead of taking me to the company, he took me to a room in Shankar Ki Dhani village near Bilaspur. Two persons were already there in the room and later three others joined them. All six of them, including the one who posed as the supervisor, took turns to rape me,” she said.
