Four inebriated youths, on Wednesday, allegedly raped a 23-year old nurse who was on her way home from work at a private hospital in Faridabad. A case was registered on Friday.

Police have arrested three of the four accused. They said the relatives of the victim had “reported the matter on Friday and we had a medical checkup of the victim girl done,” SSP MS Sheroran said.

The victim was walking home at around 8.20 pm on Wednesday, when the four drunk youths dragged her inside the Dashhera Ground and committed the crime. The accused were identified as Manoj, Dhiraj (both from Palli village), Dharmendar from Frontier colony and Datish from Manjhawala village.

Man gets 10-yr RI for kidnapping, raping a minor

A Delhi court on Friday sentenced a man to ten-year rigorous imprisonment for raping a minor after kidnapping her three years ago.

Additional Sessions Judge SP Garg found Jaswinder Singh guilty of kidnapping and raping a 16-year-old girl and sentenced him to 10 rigorous imprisonment while his accomplice Jaswir Singh was sentenced to five years rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping.

"The offence committed by the convict is serious and grave whereby he kidnapped a minor out of lawful guardianship of her parents and then committed rape on her," the judge said.

The court denied the leniency plea of the convict who claimed that there was a love affair between him and victim and he was being falsely implicated due to a family dispute. The court also sentenced the other accused Jaswir Singh, who was with Jaswinder througout the act, to five years of rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping.

Earlier, it had refused the prosecution plea that it was a case of gang rape saying that the victim gave no statement if she was sexually assaulted by Jaswir. The prosecution had alleged that Jaswinder and Jasbir had kidnapped the girl from outside her school on August 11, 2003 and took her to Fatehpur in Punjab where she was raped. Police nabbed both the accused in Fatehpur three days later.
