Ankit has already been arrested.
Accusing police of dilly-dallying in acting against the accused, Mamata had yesterday threatened to commit suicide if she did not get justice.
She had said her family was "living in fear" as only one of the accused has been nabbed till now now since the incident occurred on Tuesday and alleged that the police were harassing her and not taking action against the culprits due to their proximity with a Samajawadi Party leader.
