Police are yet to make any headway in identifying or arresting the four men who allegedly abducted and raped a call centre employee hailing from Mizoram in the national capital.
The 30-year-old woman was walking towards her home in Moti Village in south Delhi early yesterday morning along with one of her colleagues when the men forced her into a vehicle and took turns to rape her.
She was later dumped in Mongolpuri after which she approached police.
“No arrests have been made. We are in the process of identifying the accused,” a senior police official said. A case of rape and abduction has been registered and investigations are on.
“She is traumatised. A NGO has been approached for counselling,” the official said. The victim, who works in a Gurgaon BPO, had come to the capital four years ago and was staying with her sister in a rented accommodation in Moti Village near Dhaula Kuan.
Arrest culprits: NESCH
Condemning the gang rape of a Mizo girl in South Delhi on Tuesday night, the North East support centre & helpline has demanded the Delhi Police to arrest the culprits immediately.
In a statement released today, the NE support centre & helpline also urged Delhi Police to setup night patrolling at the prone areas immediately and provide white paper on action taken.
The areas that were prone to attacks on NE girls include Murnika, Mahipalpur, Moti Bagh, Mohamadpur, Nanakpuram, Friends Colony, North Delhi Campus, Nehru Basti, Gandhi Basti and Sikhanderpur in Gurgaon.
According to NE helpline spokesperson Madhu Chandra, the latest rape incident has spread panic among the north east communities living in Delhi.
He alleged that neither Delhi Police nor government has taken any concrete step to stop social profiling and racial attack on NE people.
Chandra said Delhi police commissioner B K Gupta has directed NE helpline to discuss the matter with joint secretary of Delhi South Block Police, Murli Patnaik.
“Patnaik has assured to take up Sonia’s case and ensure the culprits booked and punished as per the law and we are meeting him tomorrow with list of demands from Delhi police,” said Chandra.
The NE helpline spokesperson also said that they were demanding Delhi police to setup special night patrolling to escort North East girls and other working women at the areas where such cases take place repeatedly.
“We strongly believe most of these working women will be protected if Delhi police employs night patrolling in these areas,” Chandra said.
Meanwhile, Delhi Police on its part said they have set up a cell under a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) in each district to deal with the problems faced by people from the north-east.
A senior police official said they had earlier issued instructions to call centres to ensure that women are dropped near their house and not on roads.
“There was a meeting with BPOs recently. We have asked them to ensure that a security guard also accompany them in the vehicles,” the official said.
