In yet another case of crime against women, a 20-year old Delhi University (DU) student has been allegedly gang-raped by five men in Faridabad. Some of the accused are said to be friends of the victim. The police have already arrested four of them and are carrying out further investigations. According to the case file, the victim studies at a Delhi University college in south Delhi. She was friends with two of the accused, who also studied in the same college. On February 3, the two friends convinced her to join them for a party. She was hesitant initially, but agreed after the friends informed her that other female friends would also be attending the party.
However, the friends took her to another friend’s house located in Faridabad. It is alleged that here four people including the two friends raped her and warned her about reporting the incident to anyone. Later, another friend raped her in a car while dropping her to Delhi. The incident left the girl traumatized and she did not attend college for several days. After around two weeks, the girl decided to take action and informed the college authorities. An FIR was lodged subsequently in southeast Delhi’s Lajpat Nagar police station.
