In a heart-wrenching incident, two girls were allegedly gangraped by five youth in Delhi’s Aman Vihar area around 6 pm on Wednesday, media reported.
A police official said the victims, aged 17 and 18, had gone on a walk at a government park with two other friends, when they were targeted by the five people.
“The girls and their friends (both boys) were chatting when the accused arrived and misbehaved with the girls. When the boys with them objected, the accused assaulted and overpowered them. Then they raped the girls in front of them,” said a police officer, according to Indian Express.
“The incident happened in an open agricultural field beside the park,” the officer added.
Four of the five youths have been arrested. Police said: “Their identities cannot be disclosed at this point as their ages are being verified.”
The police registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC and medical examination confirmed sexual assault.
