A 90-year-old widow in India was allegedly gang-raped by two men who stormed into her house at night.
The old woman said they left her “almost half-dead” after the attack in India on October 24.
When she regained her senses the next morning she told her neighbour.
She went to hospital and had medical tests after the attack in the Kanchanpur area in the country’s North Tripura district.
It follows protests in India earlier this month over the gang-rape and murder of a young woman.
The family of the 90-year-old woman took her to a police station and lodged a report against Anjan Nama, 35, and another unidentified man, the Times of India reports.
Speaking to reporters, the woman said: “Anjan and another man stormed into my house at midnight.
“They raped me and left me almost half dead.
“When I regained my senses the next morning, I informed my neighbour.
“But Anjan is a very powerful person and we didn’t dare to take a stand against him.”
Kanchanpur sub-divisional police officer Bikramjit Shuklada confirmed officers are investigating the case and examining charges.
No arrests have been made so far.
It follows protests in India earlier this month over the gang-rape and murder of a young woman in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh state.
The 19-year-old victim was found in mid-September with a broken spine after the attack, and died at the end of the month in hospital.
Police arrested four men on charges of gang-rape and murder.
Protesters took to the streets on October 3 demanding justice for the woman.
Police had been criticised for cremating her body in the middle of the night against the wishes of her family and religious custom.
