Gurgaon: Two policemen were suspended on Friday for the gangrape of two Delhi-based women in a moving car early Thursday, police said.
Balraj Singh, an assistant sub-inspector and in-charge of MG Road police post and head constable Dinesh Kumar were suspended for negligence of duty. They were on duty when the two women were raped in the car.
Police said that when the victims informed the police control room about the incident early on Thursday, Kumar failed to convey the message to Singh as he did not have his cellphone number.
Kumar was suspended for not giving his cellphone number to the police post. Two Delhi-based women aged 25 and 27 were gangraped in Gurgaon in a moving car while going home from a pub.
The women had hired a car outside Sahara Mall to go to Tughlaqabad in south Delhi. The driver picked up two other men. The women were gangraped on the Gurgaon-Faridabad Road while four friends of the accused followed in another vehicle, police said.
The women were dumped on Gurgaon-Faridabad Road, from where they contacted police.
The five accused are cab drivers and were arrested on Thursday. Another accused was arrested on Friday while one is absconding.
