Nadia Superintendent of Police Arnab Ghosh told a press conference in Ranaghat that a study of the CCTV footage at the convent had shown them visuals of four persons who were allegedly involved in the crime.

“We are now working on the lead received from the footage as we have got the description of the four persons,” he said.

The SP also announced that a reward of Rs 1 lakh would be given to any individual providing credible information leading to the arrest of the accused.

“A reward of Rs 1 lakh would be given to anyone who will give correct and relevant information,” he said.

An 71-year-old nun was allegedly gangraped by dacoits at Gangnapur in Nadia district early today, triggering protests and blockades of roads and railway tracks even as West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee ordered a CID probe into the incident.

According to authorities at a convent school in Ranaghat sub-division, the gang broke into the convent after 12:30 am and three-four of them raped the woman after gagging her.

The gang also decamped with Rs 12 lakh which was kept in the almirah locker.
