Lucknow, June 11 - A woman was gang raped allegedly by four policemen inside a police station in Uttar Pradesh. The SHO was arrested Wednesday.

The incident took place Monday when the woman went to meet her husband, detained in connection with a case, in Sumerpur police station of Hamirpur district.

Hamirpur Superintendent of Police Virendra Shekhar told IANS that following a complaint by the woman, a first information report was lodged and the station house officer (SHO) was arrested Wednesday.

Shekhar assured the woman that no one would be spared if found guilty.

Three other policemen named in the complaint are absconding and a search is on to arrest them, officials said.
