In yet another incident of rape reported in a little over a week from Haryana, a 22-year-old woman was allegedly raped after being pulled out of her car as her husband and brother-in-law were held at gunpoint in sector-56 area of Gurugram. Four persons have been arrested in relation to the incident, police informed. The incident occurred on Monday night when the woman was on her way back from a family function in her brother-in-law’s car.
According to the woman, they stopped the car at Business Park Tower in sector 56 where the husband got down to use the bathroom. As per the police complaint by the woman, two cars, with four people inside, pulled up near their vehicle. The men then asked them the reason for stopping there.
As per the complaint, the men then dragged the woman out of the vehicle. While one of the men raped the victim, the other three held her husband and brother-in-law at gunpoint, Manish Sehgal, ACP and chief PRO of Gurgaon police, was quoted as saying.
The accused fled thereafter, threatening the victim with dire consequences if they approached the police. According to the police, the accused was nabbed as the husband managed to note the registration number of one of the cars of the accused.
“The accused were arrested from their residences in Johalka village near Sohna in Gurgaon and a case under relevant sections of the IPC has been registered against them,” Sehgal said.
The incident comes as part of a string of incidents of sexual assault against women in the state in little over a week. The incidents have drawn sharp criticism for the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government in the state. The Congress has sought the dismissal of the government over the rising incidents of crime against women in the state.
In a memorandum submitted to the Governor on Wednesday, the Congress has sought the removal of the Khattar government alleging a complete breakdown of law and order.
