The 20-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was left in critical condition following the attack which began on December 30 in the eastern state of Odisha.
She told officers that the abuse started when a man claiming to be friends with her brother approached her at a station as she waited for a train.
A 20-year-old engineering student said she was lured away from this station by a man claiming to be friends with her brother before being taken to a house where she was gang raped

Police told the Hindustan Times that the woman quickly realised she was headed in the wrong direction, but the man told her to disembark at a different station and catch a bus to her destination.
