A 30-year-old Finnish national was on Saturday morning raped by a man she met at a pub here. The accused, Elwis Montana, a 25-year-old from Andaman and Nicobar, was arrested later in the day after the victim filed a police complaint.
The woman is an executive with a multi-national company while Montana is a translator with a Mumbai-based MNC. They weren't known to each other.
"They met at a pub in the Chanakyapuri area and had a drink together. After two hours, when the girl got up to leave, Montana offered her a lift and she accepted. They left together in his car at around 1.30am Saturday," said a police officer on condition of anonymity.
But instead of taking the woman to her house, the officer said, Montana took her to a guest house in south Delhi's Hauz Khas area. He raped her there and when she resisted, threatened her.
"In her complaint, the girl told us Montana threatened her with a knife. He left her at the guest house after raping her. At around 4am, she came out of the guest house and reported the matter to the police at 7am," the officer added.
A medical examination confirmed rape. The police arrested Montana in the afternoon. A case under sections 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered at Hauz Khas police station.
Further investigations are on. The police have found out that the woman, who lives in south Delhi, earlier had dinner alone at a restaurant in Greater Kailash-II. "She left GK at around 10pm Friday. We are obtaining CCTV footage of the pub to ascertain their presence there," the officer said.
