On Feb 5, 2012, the 37-year-old woman was allegedly raped at gunpoint after five men offered her lift outside a night club at Park Street.

Police cracked the case after they studied the CCTV footage of the parking lot of the hotel.

On Sunday, the Kolkata police arrested the 3 accused, who were involved in the case.

Explaining her story, the victim said that her family supported her to come with out the truth. "To bring out the story I had to speak a thousand times, but I didn't care as long as the truth came out. I was so defenseless. But today I see the support for me. We need to talk about it. We must talk about this, it's important. There are a lot of animals out there," she said.

And added, "I never wanted to go to the police or talk about it. I wanted to bury it in my heart. But my daughters, my family explained to me. I am so angry. I am not ashamed, I am angry that they can do this and get away with this. But I am glad they now know they can't."
