A 23-year-old Uzbek woman was allegedly thrashed and raped by a friend at a hotel in east Delhi, police said on Friday.
The complainant, who had come to India on a tourist visa and lived at a friend’s house in Saket, told police that on May 11, she had gone to meet a friend at his residence in Gagan Vihar.
When she reached there, there was no electricity at his house, following which they both went to a hotel in east Delhi.
They had dinner there, following which the friend persuaded her to accompany her to a room where they were joined by two others around 2am, a police official said.
The men then allegedly asked her to have sex with them and when she refused, they allegedly thrashed her and even tried to strangulate her.
Later, her friend allegedly forced himself upon her and went off to sleep, while the others left the room.
The accused also allegedly threatened her not to leave the room without permission but the complainant escaped once he was asleep and reported the matter to police the next day, the official said.
She also told police that the accused called her up the next morning apologising for his act and claimed that he was in an inebriated state.
The statement of the complainant has been recorded and the case is being probed from all possible angles, the official added.
However, no one has been arrested in connection with the matter yet.
