Two women hailing from Jharkhand were allegedly intoxicated and then raped by a man in Northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura area. Police said after raping the women, the man reportedly dumped them at two separate spots in Bhajanpura.
The two women, aged 21 and 24 years, are Theology graduates who had come to Delhi on June 2 to pick up some documents from their institute in Gurgaon. Police said they needed the documents to apply for a job. According to police, the women were scheduled to return to Jharkhand on June 5 after completing their work.
Police said the accused had offered to help the women get their return train tickets — which were on the waiting list — confirmed.
“The accused took them to the Old Delhi railway station on the pretext of getting their work done. He hired an auto to go to the station and on the way gave the women a drink laced with sedatives that made them unconscious. When the women gained consciousness they found themselves in Bhajanpura,” a police officer said.
The women then approached police and filed a complaint. All their belongings were also missing. “A medical examination was conducted and it was found that they had been sexually assaulted,” a police officer said.
The police have registered a case of rape against the accused and are investigating the matter.
