An 11-year-old girl and a 28-year-old woman were allegedly gangraped in two separate incidents this week in outer Delhi’s Sultanpuri. In both the cases, the suspects were known to the rape survivors, police said.
The minor girl was gangraped allegedly by her two cousins at gunpoint while the woman alleged she was drugged and gangraped at an isolated place by her former landlord and his three brothers. Two separate cases were registered at the Sultanpuri police station in connection with the crimes.
A police officer said the first incident took place on Tuesday. The minor girl and her younger sister and other family members had come to Delhi from their native home in UP’s Moradabad to attend their relative’s wedding.
After the wedding, the other guests left but the two sisters and their family members stayed back. On Tuesday evening, the girls’ uncle fell ill and was admitted to a hospital. Everybody from the house, except the two girls, went to the hospital.
Around midnight, the girls were sleeping when they heard a knock at the main door. The elder one opened the door and found that their two cousins had come in a drunken state. After dinner, one of the cousins allegedly started touching the girl inappropriately.
“When she resisted, the other cousin whipped out a pistol and threatened to kill her. The two then took turns to rape her in the presence of the other sister. The two then threatened to kill them and left the house,” said the officer.
When the relatives returned, the sisters narrated their ordeal. The police were informed and a case was registered. The cousins are yet to be arrested.
In the second incident on Wednesday, a 28-year-old woman alleged that she was abducted, drugged and gangraped by her landlord and his three brothers while she was returning home after work in Sultanpuri. A case was registered on her complaint. Sources said the brothers have been detained.
The woman in her complaint alleged that on Wednesday evening, she was returning home when her former landlord and his two brother met her and engaged her in a conversation. They allegedly offered her a spiked drink which she consumed and fell semi-unconscious.
The three took her to an isolated place where they were joined by their fourth brother. They took turns to rape her and then fled. She sustained injuries but somehow informed her sister who took her to a hospital. The woman helpline was informed about the crime and they in turn informed the police.
