Chandigarh: Two key accused, including an Armyman, in Rewari gangrape case who went absconding were arrested on Sunday, Haryana police said.
Armyman Pankaj and Manish were arrested by the Haryana Police’s Special Investigation Team (SIT) for allegedly raping a 19-year-old girl from Rewari on September 12.
Another prime accused Nishu was arrested last week and later sent to a four-day judicial custody.
All three accused are from a village in Rewari district.
The SIT also arrested two other men -- Deen Dayal and Dr. Sanjeev -- in connection with case last week.
While Deendayal is the owner of the tubewell where the sexual assault took place, Sanjeev was summoned by the accused to administer first-aid to the victim after the gangrape but did not inform the police about it.
The woman, an ex-CBSE topper hailing from Rewari, was abducted at a bus stop in Kanina town in neighbouring Mahendragarh district on September 12 while she was on the way to a coaching class, police said. She was then allegedly drugged and gangraped at a secluded spot.
The Haryana Police had set up the SIT headed by Mewat SP Naazneen Bhasin to probe the case.
