Two incidents of gang-rape, including one in which the accused had prepared a video clip showing the victim in a compromising position, have been reported in different parts of the Capital during the past few days. In both cases, the victims alleged that they were made to consume soft drinks laced with some sedatives.
The first case was reported to the police on Wednesday by a Class X student alleging that she was raped by a friend’s brother and his friend on August 14. The girl was in Mayur Vihar when her friend’s brother Vivek met her. Claiming that his sister was looking for her, he convinced her to accompany him in a car. However, instead of taking her to his residence, the accused took her to a house in Trilokpuri and on the way he allegedly made her consume cold drinks laced with sedative.
While the accused was joined by another friend, a woman who was already present there, latched the door from outside. The two accused then took turns to rape the girl and also made a video clip with a mobile phone camera.
The accused then set the victim free threatening to make the video clip public if she revealed about the incident to anyone. However, when she told the accused that she would tell everything to her parents, it is alleged that they forwarded the video clip to their friends.
When the victim learnt that the video clip had been made public, she narrated the entire incident to her parents. Subsequently they contacted the police and got a case registered against the duo. The police have launched a hunt for them.
In another incident, a 34-year-old woman has alleged that she was raped by her live-in partner and his three friends in New Friends Colony a few days ago. According to the victim, her partner invited his friends to their house and allegedly offered her cold drinks laced with some sedative. After she passed out, the four allegedly raped her. When the victim regained her conscious- ness, she allegedly found that Rs.5 lakh was also missing from the house. Based on her complaint, they registered a case two days ago and arrested the accused on Thursday.
