A video of a group of men raping a woman has gone viral, forcing the police to launch an operation to nab the suspects in Bihar's Gaya.

SPs of 11 districts have been ordered to help Gaya police by the Patna HQ.

The men spoke a language native to Magadh region, that includes Gaya and surrounding districts. It's still unclear when the rape happened.

The video, which was widely circulated on WhatsApp, showed the woman pleading to the men to let her go.

Turning a deaf ear to her requests, the four men kept laughing and raping her.

Till now, nobody has come forward to file a complaint.

On May 11, a 'Zero FIR' was lodged in the Kotwali police station, said Patna Zone IG Nayyar Hasnain Khan.
