“…since the recovery is to be affected and remaining co-accused are yet to be arrested, so the accused persons are remanded in police custody till January 20,” the court said.
Delhi Police had sought seven days remand of the accused, saying they have to recover the looted articles.
However, the court said the police should try to catch them in three days. “If you (police) are not able to nab them, then we will think about it on January 20,” the judge said.
Public Prosecutor said that all the absconding accused are vagabonds, who do not have permanent addresses, therefore, it would be difficult to arrest them in three days.
The police have booked the accused persons under sections 376 (2)(G) (gangrape), 397 (robbery or dacoity, with attempt to cause death or grievous hurt) and 392 (robbery) of the IPC.
The victim, who had come to India on January 1, lost her way to her hotel in Paharganj on Tuesday following which she approached a group of six men asking for directions.
They took her to a secluded place, robbed her of her belongings and took turns to rape her at knife point, she told the police.
