The assault took place in May this year.
Awas circulated on social media in which the accused even inserted a bottle in her private parts. The 22-year-old woman was later allegedly gangraped.
The rape survivor was trafficked from Bangladesh by a network of human traffickers active in her country, Assam, West Bengal, Telangana and Karnataka, three years ago, police said. She was then forced into prostitution by the gang, they added.
The accused allegedly tortured and gangraped her following a financial dispute.
“As per information revealed so far, all of them are part of the same group and believed to be from Bangladesh. Due to financial differences, the culprits brutalised the victim who is also said to be a Bangladeshi, brought to India for human trafficking,” the Bengaluru police had said in a statement and filed a case against the accused charging them with rape, assault and other sections.
