A team of NGO associated with the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) visited the 22-year-old gang rape victim on Sunday to record her statement.

The woman has alleged that four men allegedly kidnapped her and raped her in a moving car in Ghaziabad on July 7. She was dumped near Fortis hospital in Noida around midnight with her hands and legs tied and a bottle shoved inside her. She was helped by a passerby who informed the police.

“We have recorded her statement and based on that we will submit a report before the DCW and the course of action will be decided then. We want the police to conduct a fool-proof investigation,” said Dorothy Komal, who visited victim’s house.

The woman has been complaining of acute pain in the stomach. “I want to see a doctor but the police have not furnished a FIR copy or medical report to me. I want to get my ultrasound done,” said the victim.

The victim had earlier visited the Lal Bahadur Shastri hospital in east Delhi where the doctors had given her a painkiller shot. 

They had refused to admit her as she didn’t have identification or documents.

The victim woman has also alleged that the Ghaziabad police are trying to frame her in the case instead of taking action against the people named in the FIR. The man who had helped the woman had also alleged irregularities on part of the police.

However, senior police officers claim that they are close to cracking the case and will make arrests only after a detailed investigation.
