Delhi Police arrested six youths in connection with gang raped with a third-year student of Delhi University in Faridabad.

Police said on Saturday that the incident came to light on February 18 after the victim, 20, a student of PGDAV college here in Nehru Nagar filed a complaint against six of her friends, who allegedly gang-raped her in Faridabad.

The victim in her complaint to police has stated that on February 3, two of her friends, Gaurav and Sunny, took her to Faridabad on a bike for partying after a college function. The bike belonged to another friend, Sachin.

“They took her to another friend Rohtash’s house where Gaurav, Sunny, Sachin and Rohtash gang raped her. They also threatened her with dire consequences if she approaches police,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Banniya told IANS.

“Since the incident started in Delhi, a case of rape was registered against all the accused youths. The police on Saturday arrested six students, including one Bunty, who was a co-conspirator” The DCP said.

Earlier in 2012, six people gang raped a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern in a moving bus and beat her and her male friend. After violently raping and attacking her, they threw the girl outside the vehicle, along with her male friend. The girl succumbed to her injuries in a Singapore hospital on December 29, 2012.

The incident led to large-scale protests across the country, forcing the government of the day to make strict and punitive laws related to harassment of women. One of the accused, Ram Singh hanged himself in prison, while another man, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime, was convicted in August and will serve the maximum sentence of three years in a reform home.
