Four arrested for raping minor girlFebruary 27th, 2012 - 12:54 am ICT by IANS
Noida, Feb 26 (IANS) Four youths were Sunday arrested for raping a Class 10 student after abducting her and forcing her to drink alcohol, police said. However, a senior police officer said that the girl had gone with them willingly and all that happened was with her consent.
Himanshu Sharma, 23, Rahul Kumar, 24, Sunil Singh, 22, and Saurabh Chauhan, 23, were arrested from near the Spice Mall here and a car used in the crime seized. One more accused, identified as Neeraj, is still at large.
According to Superintendent of Police (City) Anant Dev, the accused had raped the 16-year-old girl Friday night.
As per the victim’s FIR, she was returning from her father’s shop in Sector-12 Friday when she met Himanshu, Rahul and Sunil, all whom she knew.
On the pretext of taking her to a party, the three took her to a room in Ghijore area, where Saurabh and Neeraj were present. After forcing her to drink alcohol, they took her to a deserted spot behind a hotel nearby and took turns to rape her.
The girl was then dropped near the spot from where the accused had met her initially and threatened not to tell anyone, otherwise they would kill her and her family members. They also threatened to release a MMS clip of the incident.
Though the girl toldthat she was forcibly made to drink alcohol and then raped, Anant Dev said she was well acquainted with the accused and even had physical relations with some of them.
“The girl met the accused and went with them by consent. There she herself asked them for vodka and then asked them to have physical relations with her,” the SP (City) told the media.
Asked why there was a contradiction in the official police version as given in the press statement and that disclosed by him to media, Anant Dev said: “The press statement is based on the complaint filed by the girl while the latter revelation has come to light in the course of investigations.”
Of the accused, Himanshu, Neeraj and Sunil are students, while Saurabh owns a car shop. Rahul works a gatekeeper at a mall in Noida.
