Woman gang-raped allegedly by husband, two others

A young woman was gang-raped and brutalised allegedly by her estranged husband and two others in a moving car in East Delhi on Monday evening.

The three accused, who also allegedly inserted a candle into the woman’s private parts, are currently on the run.

The woman purportedly told the police that she was returning from a mall when she was abducted and pulled into a car. “She found her husband and two other unknown persons in the car. The three men took turns to rape her and also inserted candles into her private parts,” said a police officer.

The men then abandoned the woman at an isolated stretch in an unconscious state. “Upon regaining her consciousness, she contacted her family members who brought her to Anand Vihar police station,” said the officer.

The woman is learnt to have told the police that she and her husband were neighbours in East Delhi’s Ram Nagar and decided to get married nearly a year ago and soon after the wedding, they started having fights.

“Their relationship soured to such an extent that they started living separately in Shahadara area within a month. The woman was in the process of seeking divorce from him,” said the officer.

He added that the woman had also filed a case against her husband and his family in Ghaziabad’s Vijay Vihar in March this year accusing them of abduction and attempt to murder. Even during Monday’s incident, her husband kept saying that she was punished for filing police complaints against him and his family, the officer quoted the victim as saying.
