In a horrific incident, a 30-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped by four men in front of her husband and infant in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar on Friday noon, reported The Times Of India.

As per the police, the couple was returning home on a bike after visiting a pediatrician. It was then that the four accused who were in a car stopped them and dragged the woman to a sugarcane field nearby.

The men tied up the husband and held a sharp knife to the child's throat while dragging her out to the fields. The men then took turns to rape her.

The woman said the alleged rapists constantly threatened to kill her child if she didn't comply and beat her husband too, as per a report by Hindustan Times. After raping her, they fled.
