The police have rounded up four persons alleged to have gang-raped a 21-year-old law student in Bangalore University’s Jnanabharathi campus on Saturday night.

They were part of an eight-member gang involved in the crime.

Sources in the police said the four, who were picked up on Monday, were being interrogated. Five teams have been formed to probe the incident.
