It was not immediately known how the men pleaded in court on Monday, but when they were arrested on Sunday, police said that they confessed to the crime. They also face charges stemming from the robbery of the couple.

The incident took place on Friday night when the couple was camping in a forest in Datia district. The couple informed police that the woman was raped by seven or eight men, but they could not determine the amount because it was dark at the time.

The husband was beaten by the men and was then tied to a tree prior to raping the woman. The cellphone, laptop and 10,000 rupees ($185) were all stolen from the couple. The laptop and the phone were recovered from one of the suspects.
