New Delhi, Feb 24: A 23-year-old woman was gangraped in a moving car and dumped at Rajghat after 5 hours. She was allegedly offered a ride by an acquaintance from South Extension earlier on Wednesday morning.
Police said they received a call around 4 am from the woman, who works at a shoe factory.
“We have not received any complaint. On the basis of the PCR call, we are examining what action we can take,” said H G S Dhaliwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South). Police said the victim was too scared to file a formal complaint. According to police, the woman got into the Maruti Gypsy because she knew one of the accused.
She was taken to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on Wednesday for a medical examination, which confirmed sexual assault, police said. She is being provided medical aid and an NGO has been told to counsel her, they added.
“She is in trauma and is not able to narrate the sequence of events. We have sought legal opinion, before we register an FIR,” said a senior police officer.
The accused reportedly drove around Delhi without being stopped for checking even once.
The Delhi Police had started checking all vehicles plying on city roads at night, after last year’s Dhaula Kuan gangrape case, when a 30-year-old BPO employee was abducted and sexually assaulted.
