Rwandan rape victim was out shopping

The Rwandan national, who was allegedly gang raped by four men, was buying vegetables at north Delhi’s Wazirpur market when her abduction took place on December 1, police said on Friday.

Police said the victim has been living in rented accommodation at Wazirpur Village with a partner since September. “She is pursuing a course in English from a private institute in Timarpur,” a police official said, adding accused Deepak, Ashok, Praveen and Vikas stay in the victim’s neighbourhood.

She was allegedly abducted in a vehicle by Deepak and Ashok who then transported her to a secluded spot near Yamuna bank where Praveen and Vikas later joined them.

Deepak and Ashok also snatched and destroyed her mobile phone to ensure she could not contact anyone for help before throwing her into a patch of bushes before sexually assaulting her.

“Minutes later, they were joined by Praveen and Vikas who reached the spot on a motorcycle. The men then drove her back to the village and threw her outside a lane leading to her house before speeding away,” the official added.

The accused were nabbed in their homes on Thursday evening and produced before a city court on Friday which remanded them to judicial custody.
