Police on Thursday confirmed two more rapes in the capital. Both the victims are 16-year-old and were assaulted by people known to them after being kidnapped and given sedative-laced drinks.

In the first incident, a class 10 student has alleged that she was kidnapped by her friend’s brother in Mayur Vihar area of east Delhi last month.

The victim, Shazia (name changed), who studies in a government school and lives with her family in Trilokpuri, also claims that a MMS was made of the incident on August 14.

 “We have taken the statement of the victim and a case of rape was registered at Mayur Vihar police station on Wednesday,” a police official said.

In her statement to police, Shazia said she was returning home from school when her friend Payal’s 22-year-old brother Vivek met her near her home. Vivek told her that Payal wanted to meet her and offered a lift in his car.

“Payal went with Vivek and on the way he gave her a sedative-laced drink. She subsequently lost consciousness after which Vivek took her to a house in Trilokpuri where his friend Raza was waiting,” the official added.

Vivek then raped her, while it is alleged that Raza made a MMS on his mobile phone. The duo also threatened her of dire consequences and to make the MMS public if she told anyone about the assault.

Shazia initially refrained from informing her parents, but told Vivek that she was about to talk to her parents. To further threaten Shazia, the MMS was circulated among their friends by Vivek and Raza.
