In a major breakthrough, one of the accused in the Manesar gang rape has been arrested by the police. The other two involved in the gang rape have also been identified by Gurgaon police and efforts are being made to locate and arrest them. It may be recalled that the police had circulated the sketches of the three accused to help catch the perpetrators. However, the tip came through an unexpected way when one of the suspects confessed to his crime before the sarpanch of the village where he used to live. The village where all the three accused live is Bas Kusla village in Manesar. After hearing the confession of one of the accused, Sarpanch Jitender Chauhan called ACP Dharamvir Singh, who has been tasked to lead the Special Investigative Team (SIT) formed to look into the case.
The police arrived soon after, in just around 15 minutes and arrested the one accused. The accused confessed to his crime before the police and also revealed the identities of two other who were involved in the gang rape. Gurgaon police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar said that the accused arrested has been taken to the Manesar Industrial police station in sector 7. He said that the other two accused have also been identified and will be arrested soon. It is believed that all the three accused were originally from Bulandshahar district in Uttar Pradesh. They were living in the village on rent.
