A 17-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped by ten persons at a hotel in Jaipur, where she was taken to – on the pretext of job – by a couple who lives in her neighbourhood at outer Delhi’s Mongolpuri area.
The girl managed to escape from the hotel and came back to Delhi within 24 hours after which she reported the matter to the police.
Six persons, arrested so far in connection with the incident, have been identified as Rocky, Rani, Mahesh, Anil, Arjun and Kamal, said DCP (Outer) Vikramjit Singh. Six more persons who had allegedly raped the girl are yet to be identified.
According to the police, the victim needed a job urgently and she had approached the couple Rocky and Rani, living in her neighbourhood. The couple claimed to have given jobs to several women in Delhi-NCR and nearby cities.
The girl’s father works as a vegetable vendor and is an alcoholic. The girl was in a desperate need of employment to meet the daily needs of the family, said a police official.
The police are now trying to ascertain the identities of six more persons who had allegedly raped the girl. CCTV footage obtained from the hotel and nearby premises are being monitored.
The police are also checking records to ascertain if Rocky and Rani have criminal cases registered against them and whether they have trapped other victims as well, they added.
