A 36-year-old woman from Delhi was allegedly kidnapped by five men in Ghaziabad and gang-raped for two days, police said on Wednesday. All five men were known to the survivor, who is in hospital. One of the accused, identified as Shahrukh, has been arrested, the police added.
The woman is in a "very serious condition with an iron rod still inside her", Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal had tweeted. However, the hospital where the woman is being treated denies it. "No internal injury has been found till now," said the hospital.
The Ghaziabad police were on Tuesday alerted to a woman lying near the Ashram Road that connects the satellite town to Delhi. The woman refused to be examined at a government hospital so the police took her to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital and registered her complaint.
According to the police, the woman was returning to Delhi after a birthday party in Ghaziabad on Sunday and was dropped off at a bus stand by her brother. While she was waiting for the bus, a car approached the woman and five men dragged her into it, the police said. They took her to an undisclosed location and allegedly raped her.
"It is being said that they (survivor and accused) have a property dispute and the matter is sub-judice. We're taking all necessary action," Nipun Agarwal, superintendent of police Ghaziabad, told news agency ANI.
The Delhi Commission for Women has issued notice to the Ghaziabad senior superintendent of police asking for details of the accused.
