The man lied and said he knew her girlfriend and took her to his room where he allegedly raped her.
The girl was imprisoned for a week, with five of her husband's friends raping her.
The Times of India reported that the girl had been dumped by her abductor at the bus station, which posed a serious threat to her reporting the crime to the police.
But the Press Trust of India reported that she escaped her captors and made her own way back to the station.
There she was noticed by a guard who called the police.
Officers found the girl in shock, but after counseling, she was able to report to them about her horrific ordeal.
Kausdshal said that a case had been opened under the protection of children against sexual offenses (POCSO) Act and promised that the guilty would be brought to justice.
Indignation about cases of rape in India has in recent years given rise to massive protests and even lynching of suspects.
