“We rushed to the spot…. She is a sportswoman and she must have attempted to fight back. It also appears that there was more than one person involved in it. I believe that she was raped as well,” said the victim’s sister to Indian Express…. The Quint reported that the family faced resistance from the police while filing the complaint….
