A woman from Delhi was allegedly gangraped and brutally assaulted with rods in her private part by a group of men in Ghaziabad and then left on the roadside.
The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) issued a notice to the Ghaziabad police in the matter.
The Ghaziabad police have taken four men into custody and said that the accused and the victim’s family were involved in a property dispute.
The Ghaziabad police stated that the 38-year-old woman who stays in East Delhi was found near Nandgram police station at 3.30 am on October 18.
The police reached the spot after receiving information that a woman was lying on the ground near Ashram Road and rushed her to a hospital where her medical check-up was also done.
The victim’s brother lodged a complaint with police giving details that the woman had gone to her brother’s birthday party in Nandgram. When he dropped her back, some around four persons known to her took her away.
The DCW in their notice requested the Ghaziabad police to furnish an FIR copy along with details of the accused arrested, and a report of action taken by October 21.
The DCW said in a statement that the woman was kidnapped by four men in a Scorpio vehicle and taken to another location, where she was gangraped by them and another man for two days. She was then put in a sack and left on the road, and was found in a pool of blood, with an iron rod inserted in her private parts, and is currently hospitalised in Delhi in a serious condition, the statement added.
DCW chief Swati Maliwal said, “When the woman was admitted to the hospital, the rod was removed with great difficulty; the woman is now fighting for her life. We have issued a notice… there should be a swift arrest and strict action taken. This case is just like the Nirbhaya case… It is my appeal that at least this case be fast-tracked and these men be given a severe punishment,”
