Four armed robbers barged into a house of a retired engineer in the wee hours of Friday, beat up the family members and allegedly raped a woman before decamping with jewellery and cash.

A case has been lodged at Vaishali Nagar police station.

Additional deputy commissioner of police (West) Karan Sharma said the gang gained entry into the house in Chitrakoot locality of the state capital by breaking open the kitchen window at around 3am.

The house belongs to a retired engineer who was admitted to Sawai Mansingh Hospital with a fractured leg.

The police said the robbers had locked up the engineer and his son in separate rooms before allegedly raping a 33-year-old woman, who was sleeping with her two children.

There were no major injury marks on the woman’s body. However, her medical examination has been conducted at Kanwatia Hospital. Reports are awaited to confirm whether she was raped, they said.

In the complaint lodged at Vaishali Nagar police station, the family members claimed that robbers decamped with 12 grams of gold, jewellery, Rs 10,000 and six cellphones.

The police suspect the involvement of labourers who were hired for painting and renovation of the house.
