Patna, Sep 24 (IANS) A woman from West Bengal was gangraped by five men in Bihar's Patna district, police Tuesday said.

The victim, a resident of Bolrampur village in neighbouring Bengal, was found lying unconscious by a roadside, with several injuries on her, by a team of National Disaster Response Force late Monday in Bihta, about 30 km from Patna, a police official said.
