Delhi Shame: 3 girls kidnapped, 2 raped and one still untraced

New Delhi A 13-year-old student kidnapped and raped by a 30-year-old after she snubbed his friendship request; a teenaged girl gang-raped by two men in a car and another yet to be traced after being forced into a car by two young men.

It was a night of shame for Delhi on Thursday as the three incidents were reported from the city within hours.

In one of the incidents, one of the accused is a minor while in another case, the accused was the friend of victim's relative.

In the first incident, a 13-year-old girl was forced into a car allegedly by three people, including a minor boy, in Jyoti Nagar on Thursday evening and raped by one of them after she snubbed his moves to strike a friendship with her.

The incident came to light after the victim walked in to a police station despite the accused -- Gaurav (30), Harish (21) and a minor boy -- threatening her and her family with dire consequences if they approached police. The Class 8 student was on her way to the market when she was abducted allegedly by the men who forced her into a car and took her to Gaurav's room where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

According to the girl's claims, the other two boys did not assault her. After she approached police, the girl was taken to Guru Tegh Bahadur hospital where doctors confirmed that she was raped.

Police then raided the room where she was assaulted but could not find the accused. However, they were caught late at night.

In another case, a 17-year-old girl was kidnapped from Kanjhawla in north-west Delhi by two men who sexually abused her for hours in a car roaming around Delhi streets.

The two accused Amit and Manoj were arrested in connection with the case. Amit is a friend of victim's relative and she had met him on earlier occasions.

According to police, the duo allegedly raped her in the car and then dumped her in Kanjhawla after which she went home and narrated the incident to family. The matter was reported and the police arrested the men based on the victim's statement.

In the third case, a 17-year-old girl was abducted by two unidentified men from the Chawla area close to Gurgaon while she was returning home from her workplace in Gurgaon at around 9:30 pm. She is yet to be traced.

The victim works in a private firm in Gurgaon and was returning home with her friends when the youths came in a car and kidnapped her.

Her friends who tried to fight off the kidnappers were assaulted and the girl was forced her into the car. A senior police official said they were yet to trace the girl and the kidnappers.
