A 30-year-old woman of Nepali origin was allegedly gang-raped by 5 BPO employees on the occasion of Holi. The woman informed the police that the 5 men had forcefully locked her up in a flat of an apartment situated in Pandav Nagar at East Delhi. After locking her up, they took turns to rape her. However, in order to escape from rape and from the custody of the 5 men, the woman jumped off the flat’s balcony located on the first floor of the apartment. By doing so, the woman injured her legs.
According to reports, the woman was taken to the house by her friend Vikas who was an acquaintance of the five youths. Informing her that he will be leaving now in order to complete an unfinished work, he left her along with the five in the flat. He further assured that he will pick her up the next day morning. “The woman left with him and on the way met two of his friends. The three brought her to the flat where their three other friends were already present. Vikas stepped out after some time, leaving the woman with the five men,” an officer quoted from the woman’s complaint.
The mother of two was forced to consume alcohol that night by the five accused and once she was intoxicated enough, they locked her up in the flat and allegedly took turns to rape her. The woman who lives in the Munirka area of South Delhi along with her two children was threatened to not raise any alarm and by doing so they threatened to harm her.
In the early hours of Monday, the woman managed to reach the balcony and jumped off to escape from the accused. She then alerted a passerby who alerted the police. “The rape survivor was admitted to Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital for medical treatment and examination. She sustained minor injuries in her legs. We registered a case and arrested the five youths,” said Omvir Singh, the Deputy Commissioner of Police to a leading daily.
Charges of unnatural sex, illegal confinement, and gang rape were registered under IPC against the accused Lakshya, Vikas Kumar, Naveen, Swarit and Prateek.
