Delhi: Unidentified men drugged, gangraped 16-year-old girl on pretext of helping board train
In an appalling incident in Delhi reported on Friday, where a 16-year-old domestic worker has been drugged and gangraped by unidentified men.
The domestic worker was reportedly lured on the pretext of helping her board a train to her home state of Jharkhand, police said on Monday. The accused men took the girl to a secluded place from the New Delhi Railway Station.
According to a police officer, the survivor, who worked in an East Delhi neighborhood, was not in a position to tell much about the crime scene and also how many suspects have committed the heinous act with her.
“We do not have any hard clues right now, but we hope to solve the case soon and catch the culprits,” said the officer to Hindustan Times.
As per police officer, the victim left the house where she was working on Friday evening and reached Anand Vihar railway station.
She then somehow managed to reach the New Delhi railway station where she came across three men who promised to help her in the board a train to Jharkhand. Instead of helping her, they took the girl to an unknown location where they intoxicated her forcefully and then raped her.
The girl didn’t know the topography of the region as she was an inebriated condition. Hence, she was unable to help police with details of the crime spot, an officer said.
After committing the crime, the men abandoned the girl, who walked for the next few hours, before a policeman noticed her in disoriented condition. They brought the girl to the Kotwali police station.
“Our women officers interacted with her to get to know about the crime. The survivor was fed and medically examined,” said the officer.
The 16-year-old survivor has been handed over to the Child Welfare Committee.
Meanwhile, police have registered a case of the gang rape case and under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, against unidentified persons.
