New Delhi, Dec. 27: A 42-year-old woman was allegedly sedated and gang-raped by three men in an ashram in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday night and dumped at Kalkaji in south-east Delhi last night, police said today.
In her complaint the victim, the mother of a young boy, said she had gone to Vrindavan on December 22 and was returning home on Wednesday.
She met one of the accused, Dileep Verma, in Vrindavan and he accompanied her in a car to her hometown, she said. On the way, Verma’s two friends boarded the vehicle. She alleged that the trio took her inside an ashram where she was allegedly raped after being drugged.
The incident came to light around 9.15pm when a passerby saw the woman lying on the road and informed police.
Verma was picked up from Agra and brought to Delhi for interrogation, Delhi police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.
During interrogation, Verma told the police that the victim, who hails from Rajasthan, was known to him for the past five years.
The victim is undergoing treatment at AIIMS Trauma Centre and a gang rape case has been registered.
Raids are on to nab the other two accused.
A senior police official said Verma claimed that the woman had earlier tried to register a rape case against him in Agra but the allegations were found to be false.
