Gurugram gang-rape: Cops release sketches of three accused

Gurugram Police have released sketches of three men accused of gang-raping a woman in an autorickshaw and throwing her baby out of the vehicle.

Cops have also questioned over 50 autorickshaw drivers in the IMT, Manesar area, of which the victim is a resident. Some have been detained for interrogation.

An SIT took the woman to different locations to identify the chain of events.

06 Jun 2017: Gurugram: Woman allegedly raped in autorickshaw, her baby thrown out
Three men in an autorickshaw allegedly raped their co-commuter and threw her nine-month-old infant out of the vehicle. The child succumbed to injuries.

The 23-year-old woman had boarded the rickshaw on May 29 night to go to her parent’s house in Khanda village after a fight with her husband.

The men were already inside, and started molesting her, she said.

Details: Woman didn’t report rape initially due to shame

The alleged victim, resident of IMT Manesar, said she was raped inside the vehicle on the Khandsa road, near the Delhi-Gurugram expressway. When she resisted, they threw her baby out.

She initially complained only about them killing her baby.

Manesar Police said she was afraid her husband would leave her if he knew about the incident, but she later mustered courage and reported rape.

Fact: Haryana rocked by incidents of sexual assault

This comes after two recent incidents of rape in Haryana; last month, a woman was gang-raped, mutilated and murdered in Rohtak by a jilted lover. In another incident, a woman was abducted from Gurugram, raped in a moving car, then left on a Delhi road.

Fact: Police inaction delayed justice?
Some quarters have alleged police attempted to suppress the incident as the woman belonged to a poor family. They also reportedly didn’t register an FIR of rape at first, but inserted the charge five days later.
