Teen raped in Delhi on New Year's Eve

Wednesday January 02, 2013 12:59:42 PM, IANS

New Delhi: A 17-year-old school student was sedated and raped by two men in the upscale south Delhi colony of Safdarjung Enclave on the night of Dec 31, when hundreds had gathered across the national capital to call in the New Year with protests against rape.

 

The two men in their late 20s were arrested and sent to Tihar Jail.

The men, identified as Rajesh and Naveen Jain, work in IT companies, police said. They were arrested Monday night and sent to Tihar after they were produced at the Saket court.

The victim, a Class 11 student, had met one of the accused on a social networking site. She told police officials that he had expressed the desire to meet her several times, sources said.

He finally managed to convince her to meet him on Dec 31 at a south Delhi market and then asked her to accompany him to a flat in Safdarjung Enclave. There he was joined by his friend, police sources said.

The two then sedated and took turns in raping her. They also warned her of dire consequences if she revealed anything.

The victim, however, managed to flee and took an autorickshaw to a nearby police station, where she lodged a complaint. Police immediately sent special teams under the supervision of Joint Commissioner Southern Range Vivek Gogia and Deputy Commissioner of Police Chhaya Sharma, an official said.
