Gang-rape in nat’l capital; five youths arrested; accused cud be minors
‘Nirbhaya’ gang rape case may have shook the nation but the crimes against women continue as ever.
In yet another such incident, a 20-year-old woman was gang-raped allegedly by five youths in Jahangirpuri.
The crime reportedly took place late on Wednesday night.
Though the five accused have been arrested, it turned out they were all known to the women from earlier.
The victim herself identified the accused after police began probe.
According to the complaint, the victim said in her complaint that she was passing by the dumpyard in Jahangirpuri at around 1.30am on Thursday, when she saw these five people.
They lost no opportunity in grabbing her and took her to a corner and raped her.
It was only later when the five had fled that the victim called up the police.
The woman’s medical examination at a city hospital later confirmed rape, police said.
Some of the accused may be minor but police is yet to verify that.
