Delhi University student gang-raped, 5 arrested

A Delhi University student was allegedly raped by 5 persons, including her college friends, in old Faridabad.

According to a report in Indian Express, the incident happened on February 3 when the girl, 20, had accompanied the accused to a party.

The victim, who is a resident of Noida, didn't tell anyone about the incident that happened early this month until the accused started to harass her again, the English newspaper reported citing police statement.

The victim approached the college’s Sexual Harassment Committee on February 15 and a complaint was finally lodged at Lajpat Nagar police station on February 18 under IPC sections 376 D (rape) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy).

During the investigation, police said, another person was found to be involved in the case. The man and four others have been arrested, while one is absconding.

“The girl is a third-year student. Two of her male friends took her to Faridabad, where she was raped,” DCP (southeast) Romil Baaniya told the English daily.

Police said their college held its annual fest on February 3, after which the main accused asked the girl to come to the party. The accused allegedly told her that a few other girls would be there as well.

“He and the girl reached the flat on his motorbike. They allegedly consumed liquor. The girl was then allegedly raped by all five accused. They threatened her not to reveal the incident to anyone. One of the accused again raped her at the flat. Another accused, who dropped her to her house in Noida, also raped her in an isolated place,” the officer said.
