“She left her in-laws’ place in Meerut at 4 pm on Friday to reach her native place in Mirzapur. She contacted the driver, Sunil Chaudhary, and reached the bus station from where she was taken to a a colony. He was joined by the bus conductor, Arvind Kumar. All the three consumed liquor at the flat. The two took turns to rape her,” Singh said, as quoted by the article. He also said that the police traced the accused with the call details of the woman.

Police said that the last dialed number of the woman was that of the bus driver. “The location of her phone helped us to locate the flat where a liquor bottle and three empty glasses were recovered.

We arrested him late on Saturday night when he returned to Meerut bus station,” said Singh.
