The police reportedly arrested seven people in relation to the crime.

The attack reportedly took place at Bahu Akbarpur in Haryana's Rohtak district, and the woman's body was found on Wednesday, missing key organs, according to the police. Reports also state that there were sticks, stones, and condoms stuffed into her private parts, presumably during the attack.

The police also added that the victim's body was already decomposing when the autopsy was conducted on Thursday.

In a Times of India report, Dr. S. K. Dhatterwal, the forensic department head of the medical centre conducting the autopsy, explained that he had collectively supervised or conducted more than 30,000 autopsies, "but has never seen such brutality in his 29-year career."

He goes on to say, in the TOI report,

"Her face was eaten by animals; her lungs and heart were found missing. Also, her skull had fractured and there were injury marks on both her thighs and chest.''

Doctors took five hours to conduct the autopsy. "There was a 16cm long and 4cm wide stick-like article in her vagina. We presume that a longer stick was used and it may have broken inside her. We also found a number of condoms in her vagina," said Dhatterwal.

The police still have no information on the identities of the rapists. Rohtak SP Shashank Anand said,

"We have constituted an SIT to track down the perpetrators,'' he said. "We have put our best investigators on the job.''

"It is a blind case of rape and murder... We are conducting a scientific probe considering all possible angels.''

The police have registered the case, under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC), including murder, rape and unnatural sexual act, and destruction of evidence. The investigation is ongoing, and a Rs 1 lakh reward has been announced, for anyone who has any information about the brutal crime.

On Sunday, February 8, the police claimed to have received vital information about the case, ADGP (law and order) Muhammad Akil said the "culprits will soon be arrested."

The Hindustan Times reports that Kamlesh Panchal, the Chairperson of the Haryana women's commission, visited the victim's family and said she would "demand exemplary punishment for the perpetrators of the crime."

This is the latest in a string of brutal crimes that have been plaguing North India, and people are protesting on social media, as well as in Haryana.

Isn't the Rohtak gang rape comparable to ISIS atrocities in terms of sheer barbarism?

Couldn't bear to read the details of injuries on Rohtak victim's body. What kind of society produces such crimes? Uncivilised brutes.
