Three women, all in their 20s, were allegedly gangraped by six men who visited their homes posing as policemen. Police said the incident took place in the early hours of Wednesday in Greater Noida’s Rabupura area.

The assailants tied up the men of the families, looted their belongings, ate at the house and stole six chicken. The women were taken to a Noida hospital for medical examination, police said.

Police said the families, who work as labourers in a nearby brick kiln, were sleeping when they were woken up by the assailants at 1 am. The assailants claimed that they were policemen and had come to conduct an inquiry.

Jewar circle officer Dileep Singh said police have registered a case under Sections 376 D and 395 of the IPC. “We believe six people are involved in the crime and they allegedly raped three women. We have formed teams to nab the assailants. The motive of the crime does not seem to be theft as the assailants ate and stole their chicken. We have also checked the criminal records of the area and no such incident has taken place in the last 10 years. We suspect the involvement of locals.”

One victim’s husband said the assailants, armed with country-made weapons, knocked on his door. “Initially, they told us they were policemen and had come to check if we had any illicit liquor. When I came out of the house to talk to them, they overpowered me and took my wife out. They then pulled out my neighbours in a similar way. All the men were tied up some 20 metres away from the house while the assailants took turns to rape the women,” he said. He added that they also took away their valuables, including Rs 20,000.

One of the men said they were living in the area for five years and no such incident had taken place. “They tied us up and told us that the station officer is in the nearby vehicle. They also told us not to shout as they know the owner of the brick kiln and he wouldn’t help us.” One of the women, who is pregnant, said she pleaded with them not to sexually assault her.

“I pleaded with them to take whatever they want, but not to touch me as I was pregnant. After some time they left me alone. However, the other three women could not escape.” The families said the assailants had ransacked their homes. “We have nothing left; we have to begin from scratch. We had been saving money for the last few years for our children. They took everything away,” said a victim.

One of the owners of the brick kiln where the families work said one victim’s family members had called him at 3 am. He said another family living 100 metres away from where the incident occurred were looted by unidentified assailants on Tuesday evening.

“The same men might have attacked these families later. If police had acted on time, the incident could have been averted,” he said.
Noida SP (rural) Sujata Singh said, “The first incident occurred at 8.30 pm and police were informed about it at 10.30 pm. We will investigate if the same people were involved in both cases. We will also probe why no policemen were patrolling the area even after the first incident.”

              This entire area around Delhi is notorious, but this being UP, there is little hope that the criminals will be apprehended and charged. My heart goes out to the poor folks. But in some sense, they bring this upon themselves by voting for socialist goons.

                Our culture is degraded . It seems men do not consider women as their sisters and mothers . Women are objectified by both men and women themselves . Unless we improve our vulgar culture and teach both boys and girls basic modesty , the situation will not improve .

                  India has become the gang rape capitol of the world. Women in India are neither safe inside nor outside the womb. Sad.

                    North India needs to solve this rape epidemic. Change the primary education system to include practical courses on gender equality. Also, law and order situation needs to be improved, police is already understaffed, need to have more ppl joining police, especially women

                          There is nothing like saffron terrorism it is the term used by Con, Diggi and Pappu to appease minorities. The only terror know worldwide is Islamic terrorism.

                                  NCR region is not under any single govt., it is just used as telecom circle. But governance is as per the state area undertaking.

                                    katue, looks like they also cut off commonsense from your brain while they were at it. So, continue pointing your up to heavens five times a day and keep your trap shut.

                                      UP is not a BJP ruled state. So, by political definition it is "secular". There will be no hue and cry, and no outrage on prime-time television, and no panel-debate by intellectuals. Such incedents and keep happening, and not an eyebrow would be raised.
