A 37-year-old woman was allegedly raped by five people, including the driver of a Meru cab, in the intervening night of September 17-18, after she was allegedly abducted in south-west Delhi’s Pankha Road.
The accused abducted the woman, drove her nearly 15 km away to a shop in West Delhi’s Peeragarhi area, and raped her there, said the police.
The accused then dropped her at the spot from where she had been kidnapped, according to the police.
“On the basis of the woman’s complaint, a case of gangrape and abduction has been registered. All the accused have been arrested,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Pushpendra Kumar.
In a statement, taxi service Meru said the incident was very “unfortunate”.
“Meru provided full support to the police by identifying the location of the vehicle, the residence address of the driver and background details. This helped the police confiscate the vehicle and nab the driver within hours,” it stated.
