Thursday, November 25, 2010

NEW DELHI - No arrests have been made so far in the gangrape of a call centre employee in the capital a day ago, police said Thursday.

“A case has been registered in the Dhaula Kuan police station, but no arrests have been made so far. Investigations are on,” south district Deputy Commissioner of Police H.S. Dhaliwal told IANS.

The BPO employee, a northeastern woman in her 20s, was abducted by four-five men from Dhaula Kuan in south Delhi and gangraped her in a moving tempo goods carrier early Wednesday.

The men then drove all the way to Mangolpuri in northwest Delhi and dumped her there.

“We are checking for past crime records of men involved in such cases earlier, apart from patrolling and security checks in the capital,” Dhaliwal said.

The Delhi Police refused to give any further details on the case, adding that they are holding a meeting on stepping up security for women BPO employees in the national capital region (NCR) tht includes Delhi and its suburbs in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana.

“We cannot give any details right now. We are definitely going to focus on tightening security for BPO employees working late at night,” Dhaliwal said.

The victim, staying in a rented accommodation near Nanakpura in south Delhi, was dropped with another girl nearly 100 metres from her home around 2 a.m. Wednesday by an office vehicle.

“Men in a moving vehicle kidnapped her in front of her colleague who couldn’t spot the make or the number of the vehicle as she ran away to save herself,” a police official said.

“The victim is in a state of shock and has been unable to provide details about the vehicle or the men,” he added.
