Three men, including a taxi driver, were arrested on Friday for allegedly gangraping a 27-year-old foreigner at a hotel in Karol Bagh, New Delhi.
The woman, who arrived here on Thursday from Kazakstan, had checked-in to the hotel with two of the accused, all of whom were known to her, the police said.
While the two men were arrested from the hotel, the third accused was arrested on a tip-off received though local intelligence, they said.
The incident came to light after the hotel staff heard the woman screaming on Thursday night and on asking her, she had alleged that the two men had raped her.
The staff called the police control room and when the cops arrived, she alleged that the three men were involved.
She told the police she was on a business tour to India and had come to Delhi for work purposes earlier too and had hired a taxi driver, one of the three accused, to accompany her to the market and other places in the city.
She had met the other two accused through him, according to the police.
The police said the woman was initially staying at a different hotel in Karol Bagh and had later gone with two of the accused men to the hotel where the incident occurred.
She was medically examined at a government hospital and a case of gangrape under section 376(g) of IPC was registered on the basis of her statement, they said and added that the embassy has been informed about the incident.
