Four persons have been arrested after a woman from Delhi was allegedly gangraped and assaulted by five men in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad on Tuesday, the police said.
Ghaziabad Police Superintendent of Police Nipun Agarwal said that the accused men and the women’s family were involved in a property dispute. The woman was found lying on the ground near Ashram Road and was taken to a hospital, the police officer said.
He added that the woman was returning to Delhi after a birthday party in Ghaziabad and was dropped off at a bus stand by her brother. While waiting for the bus, she was dragged into a car by five men.
“She [initially] said there were two men and then told us later that five men had raped her,” the police official said. “Based on her brother’s complaint, a case has been registered.”
Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission of Women said that woman was raped for two days and brutally assaulted, reported ANI. The panel has asked the Ghaziabad Police to submit a copy of the first information report in the case along with details of arrests made.
“She was then put in a sack and left on the road, and was found in a pool of blood, with an iron rod inserted in her private parts,” the women’s panel said in a statement. “The woman is being treated at a hospital in Delhi, but is in a very critical condition.”
Contrary to women’s panel statement, Dr Rajat Jhamb, media spokesperson of Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, said that the woman’s condition is stable.
“No internal injury [has been] found till now,” he added. “She is under observation and admitted in gynecology department.”
However, unidentified officials at the hospital told PTI that an object has been found inside her body.
