Job aspirant gang-raped for two yrs

MCD official yet to be held as police probe allegation

A 42-year-old widow in west Delhi’s Rajouri Garden has accused a municipal corporation official and his friend of repeatedly raping her for almost two years on the pretext of getting her a job.

The woman approached police to file a complaint only on Saturday.

Police said they have not arrested the accused persons yet and are probing the authenticity of her allegations.

Senior officers also refused to reveal the names of the accused persons, saying only the official was of inspector level.

The alleged rapes took place in different hotels in central Delhi’s Karol Bagh, a senior officer quoted the woman’s complaint.

She has alleged that the official would call her to the hotels often, sometimes on the pretext of submitting some documents and at other times, to convey to her the progress in the case.

“The woman says the rapes were taking place for over two years and that she did not approach police till now as she was being threatened,” a police officer told Deccan Herald.

Initially, when she objected to the rapes, the accused would silence her by saying ‘it was only a matter of days and she would join her job and objecting to the rapes could hamper the progress’, said the officer.

When the woman realised that there was no job awaiting her, her threats of filing a complaint was met by death threats, said police.

At times, another person who had introduced her to this official, would join in the act, she told police in her complaint.

“She claims she met the other man on the streets while looking for a job over two years ago. He introduced her to the official,” the officer said.

The death of her husband had forced her to seek a job. Police have booked the two men for gang-raping and threatening her.
