The Udupi Police had earlier released sketch of one of the suspects. The sketch was prepared on the basis of the description given by the 22-year old survivor, who was abducted by three persons from Manipal University campus while she was returning to her room from the library and gangraped last week.

So far, the police have questioned 30 people, including seven people who resembled the sketch of the suspect released.
