A 23-year-old woman was allegedly gangraped by seven men after they abducted her from a taxi,in which she was travelling with her 17-year-old brother on the Mehrauli-Gurgaon road,around 2.30 am on Monday.
Police said the woman,who is married and has a three-year-old child,had hired a Wyn Cabs taxi from near the Sahara Mall.
While the victim in her statement said she helped with the seating arrangements,DCP (East) Maheshwar Dayal said she was not employed with any pub in the mall. He said she used to help men not accompanied by women gain entry to pubs.
The victim in her complaint said her cab had moved only 200 to 300 metres from Sahara Mall when a Maruti 800 car stopped in front of it. Six men stepped out of the car,forced open the door of the victims cab,pulled her out and sped away after forcing her into the Maruti 800.
She told police that they stopped at a location unknown to her,where she was raped. She alleged that another man had joined the group of six.
Three of the accused later drove her to the Chhatarpur Metro station and left her there,the woman told police.
Her brother,meanwhile,reached home and told his mother about the incident who called up the police. After the family went to Mehrauli police station to lodge a complaint and the Delhi Police took them to Gurgaons DLF Phase-II police station. An FIR was lodged here based on the womans complaint and she was taken for medical examination.
The Wyn Cab driver,Mehdi Hasan,was taken by the police to the spot to reconstruct the sequence of events.
He told police that the Maruti 800 had blocked his way,leaving him no room to maneuver his vehicle.
The window on my side was open and one of them put his hand inside and unlocked the door. They dragged the woman out. I was too afraid to do anything, said Hasan.
Police said the woman suspects the involvement of a colleague,with whom she had an argument recently.
Police have taken the CCTV footage from the Last Chance pub and Sahara Mall. A hunt is on for the Maruti car and its owner.
We have got some crucial leads. The culprits will be nabbed soon, said Dayal.
