Four suspects have been detained by Delhi Police for the gang-rape of a girl in a moving bus, police said on Monday. The condition of the girl is critical.
“We have detained four people and have impounded two buses,” said a police official.
The incident took place on Sunday night, when the victim, a para-medical student and her boyfriend, boarded the bus from Munirka to go to Dwarka, after watching a movie.
Police said that around five to seven bus crew started misbehaving with the girl a few minutes after she boarded the bus, which had no other passengers.
The victim’s boyfriend tried to prevent the men from molesting her, but the men beat him up and sexually assaulted the girl.
The boy’s uncle said, “Five to seven persons attacked the couple.”
“When my nephew tried to save the girl, he was beaten with iron rods… the girl was then gang-raped,” he said.
“We will talk to the chief minister, take cognizance of the matter and inquire into it, as also keep tabs on the police investigations,” Sharma said.
“Such incidents are on the rise in the capital and this is due to the ignorance of the government as well the police force. If an incident like this can take place in the thickly populated Munirka area, it just shows that the police is not alert,” she said.
Sharma said the girl’s “male friend may have been involved with the accused.”
“Delhi’s law and order is being handled very irresponsibly by the Delhi government,” he said.
