Two women from Delhi were allegedly abducted and gangraped by five men in Goa on Monday. All the five accused have been arrested and charged with gangrape, kidnapping and robbery.

According to reports, the victims, aged 34 years and 20 years, were on their way to Anjuna beach on Monday evening when the five accused, posing as policemen, stopped their cab.

The men — Ajaykumar Kushwaha (39), Jeevan Pawar (26), Nadeem Khan (28), Trebor Joseph (27) and Kamlesh Chaudhary (21) — reportedly took them to an apartment in Khobrawaddo, Calangute where they sexually assaulted them.

“On June 1, at around 8:45 pm, the five accused, posing as policemen from CID and narcotics cell of the Goa Police, approached the victims. They confined the two women and the taxi driver in two separate rooms at Ivy Retreat, Khobrawaddo, Calangute until June 2 morning. They assaulted them with wooden sticks,” said Inspector General, Goa Police, Sunil Garg.

“The accused took turns to sexually abuse the victims. They snatched their cellphones and asked the taxi driver to withdraw cash from a nearby ATM. The driver managed to give them the slip and lodged a complaint with the local police station. We then raided the apartment and arrested them,” he added.

The accused reportedly allowed the women to go on Tuesday morning. The victims were not in the apartment when the police raided it later in the day. The police, however, later tracked them and sent them for medical tests.

The men were charged with gangrape on Wednesday after medical reports of the victims confirmed sexual assault.
