The woman, who hails from Noida, had reported the matter to police the same day. She was taken to a hospital for medical examination and her statement was recorded in the presence of a counsellor. DCP (Northeast) Sanjay Sain said, “On Monday around 4 pm, the woman informed us that she was raped by two men in a car. We immediately registered a case and initiated a probe. The woman was counselled.”
One of the accused and the woman were friends for some time but had stopped talking for a few months. On Monday, he approached the woman and asked her to come with him to Delhi to get a job. Later, his friend also accompanied them in the car. The two took her to an isolated spot in Northeast Delhi and allegedly raped her and let her go after threatening her.
Within hours of the incident, police said the accused were caught, and their car was seized. They were produced before a judge and sent to judicial custody.
