A temple priest and two accomplices accused of allegedly gang-raping a 50-year-old anganwadi worker, fracturing her leg and ribcage in Uttar Pradesh’s Badaun district have been remanded to one-day police custody by a local court.

Circle officer of Bilsi, Anirudh Singh, said on Wednesday that, "The three accused persons in the Ughaiti incident have already been sent to jail. But there are some questions which need to be answered. For this, it is necessary to take the three accused on remand".

A request through video conferencing was made to the court of the chief judicial magistrate for police remand on Tuesday and the request was granted.
