Lucknow: A girl in Uttar Pradesh said she was kidnapped from a busy market in Etawah and brutally gang-raped in a moving car. However, police said Friday that her complaint was suspect, prompting the opposition BJP to say that police response was dismaying.

In the incident that came to light late Thursday, the teen-aged girl said she was returning from the local branch of the Punjab National Bank at Naurangabad when four youths dragged her into a waiting car. Before she could raise an alarm, she was driven away and later raped.

She said her struggle caused the man who was driving the car to lose control near Katkhera village on the outskirts of Etawah, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's home town. The driver rammed into another car. While two of the alleged rapists fled the scene, the other two youths and the victim were admitted to a local hospital for treatment of accident injuries.
