New Delhi: In five separate cases, a woman was allegedly gang-raped in a moving car while four minors were raped in the national capital New Delhi, police said Wednesday. In the first incident, a 25-year-old woman was allegedly gangraped by four people in a moving car in east Delhi's Welcome area Monday night.
The incident came to light after the woman was found by a Police Control Room (PCR) van lying in unconscious near a dustbin in east Delhi's New Jafrabad area Tuesday morning. The woman was taken to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital where her condition is stated to be out of danger.
The woman told the police that she was in search of job after she separated from her husband. A few days ago, she had asked one of the accused, Yashdev, to search a job for her.
"Yashdev called the woman to meet him in Jafrabad park Monday evening on pretext of offering her a job. When the woman arrived at the appointed place, three more people were already present in a car," the police officer said.
"The accused offered her a cold drink laced with some sedatives and raped her in the moving car. She had no idea where the accused had taken her because she became unconscious after having the cold drink," the officer said.
"A case regarding the incident has been registered and Yashdev has been arrested. A hunt is on to nab the other three accused," said a police officer.
The second incident was reported from Anand Vihar area where an-eight-year-old girl was found in a pool of blood Wednesday morning. The girl was taken to a hospital and rape was confirmed after a medical examination.
In the third incident, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly raped at knife-point by a 16-year-old minor here in the city Tuesday in east Delhi's Gokulpuri area. A case regarding the incident has been registered.
In the fourth incident, a 12-year-old Class 9 girl was allegedly raped by her 14-year-old relative February 27 in west Delhi's Ranhola area. A case regarding the incident was reported March 5 after the girl narrated the incident to her family members five days later. The accused has been detained and sent to juvenile justice home, said the officer.
The fifth incident was reported last week from east Delhi's New Ashok Nagar area from where a 14-year-old minor was detained and sent to juvenile justice home for allegedly raping his two cousin sisters aged between 8 and 12 in October 2012.
