Woman gangraped at New Delhi station, four railway employees arrested

A 30-year-old woman was gangraped inside the New Delhi Railway Station premises, the police said on Saturday.

On the basis of the woman’s complaint, Delhi Police registered a case of gangrape and wrongful confinement. Four railway employees have been arrested in connection with the incident.

The arrested accused persons are identified as Satish Kumar 35, Vinod Kumar, 38, Mangal Chand Meena, 33, and Jagdish Chand, 37.

One of the arrested men, Satish Kumar, has known the woman for the past two years, Hindustan Times reported.

“Around two years ago, she came in contact with Satish Kumar through a common friend,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (railways) Harendra Kumar Singh.

“He told her that he is a railway employee and can arrange a job for her too. Both continued talking on phone.”

On Thursday, Kumar invited the woman for a party and picked her up from Kirti Nagar metro station around 10.30 pm and took her to the New Delhi Railway Station, the Hindustan Times quoted the police as saying.

“Kumar and his friend came to the room, bolted the door from inside and took turns to sexually assault her. Two of their accomplices facilitated the assault by guarding the room from outside,” the police officer said.
