Three men have been arrested after a woman jumped from a two-storey house in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata to escape rape.

According to BBC News, the woman reportedly attended a party at the house, where the three men allegedly attempted to rape her after spiking her drink.

She was rescued by neighbours after jumping, and is recovering from a head injury in hospital.

Police told BBC Hindi that one of the men arrested was the woman’s boyfriend.

Indian media reported that the men had been charged with molestation and would be produced in courts later today.
