In the video, the girl is seen trying to fight back six-seven men who tried to rip apart her clothes while lifting her off her feet. Accused are heard laughing and jeering while dragging her clothes off. One of them can be seen lifting her off her feet as she tries to kick him and free herself. No one could be seen trying to stop the group, including the person who took the video.The distraught girl kept looking at the camera crying for help while the video continued to be shot without any disturbance.
