"The woman had gone to throw garbage at a spot near her uncle's house when the four accused abducted and gang- raped her. They then fled from the spot. She confided about the incident to her relatives only on Sunday, as she was in shock," he said.

Police teams held two accused from Mandla district in MP while the rest were nabbed from Rajnandgaon itself, he added.

They have been charged with kidnapping and gang-rape, the official said.
