The Capital stayed true to its reputation of being unsafe for women when a 23-year-old woman was allegedly abducted and sexually assaulted by three men.
The incident happened in the up-market South Extension area in south Delhi.
However, no formal complaint was made in the case yet, because the girl was too traumatised to push for a case.
According to the police, the girl was allegedly held captive in a moving car for five hours. She was later dumped near Raj Ghat early on Wednesday.
The police said the woman made a call to the PCR around 4am and told them that she knew one of her captors.
According to the police, the girl was called to South Extension by the said man. She then was taken “hostage” in a white Maruti Gypsy. The accused allegedly drove around the city with her without being checked even once.
“We have not received any complaint. But on the basis of the PCR call, we are examining what action we can take,” said HGS Dhaliwal, deputy commissioner of police (south).
The victim was taken to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) where medical examination confirmed sexual assault.
The police informed an NGO for the counselling the girl.
The police said the girl was threatened every time she tried to escape from the moving car.
Even though the police claimed that after the Dhaula Kuan gang rape case of a 30-year-old BPO employee last year they started checking vehicles at arterial junctions, no one stopped the accused who drove around in the city.
