Two teenaged girls raped by neighbours

Both assaults happen in north-east Delhi

A minor girl was gang raped and another was raped in separate incidents in north east Delhi in the past 24 hours. The accused have been arrested, police said on Friday.

In the first incident, a 16-year-old girl was gang raped by three men in a restaurant at north east Delhi’s Zafrabad on Thursday.

The victim claims that the incident took place after she met her neighbour Omar, 21, at a nearby market. He took her to a restaurant where two of his friends were already present.
“The girl claims that the three men took turns to rape her and threatened to kill her if she raised alarm,” a police officer said. She was also beaten up during the sexual assault and was told to not narrate her ordeal to anyone.

The girl was left outside the restaurant after which she returned home and informed her parents. Police was informed on which the girl’s medical examination was conducted. “We have arrested Omar and his friends Feroz, 23, and Salman, 21,” the officer added.

Raped by neighbour

In the second incident, a 13-year-old girl was raped by her neighbour at her home in Seemapuri in the wee hours of Friday.

The victim lives with her family and is a class eight student of a nearby government school. Police said that she was sleeping, when Imran, 30, barged into the house.

Two of his friends were standing outside the house and helped Imran flee after rape. “Three of them were arrested on the basis of the victim’s statement,” another police officer said.
Separate cases of rape have been filed with Jafrabad and Seemapuri police stations. The accused have also been charged under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
