New Delhi: A 21-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two Afghans in South Delhi’s Green Park area last week.
The victim, a second year BA (Honours) student of JNU, told the police that she had reportedly gone to a pub in Hauz Khas village with her friend where she met one Salim.
Salim, who lives here along with his Afghan friend Sulaiman on United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) card, invited them to his house in Green Park for a party, a police officer said.
A police officer said that Salim invited them to his house in Green Park for a party. “When she went to Salim’s house along with her friend, Salim’s three friends — Sulaiman, Siddhant and Pratyusha — were present at his house. While her friend was dropped off at JNU, the girl came back to Saleem’s house and they consumed alcohol,” a police official said.
When the victim woke up in the morning, she reportedly saw Sulaiman forcing himself on her. “She realised that Salim and Sulaiman had sexually assaulted her when she was unconscious,” the police officer told this newspaper.
The 21-year-old victim then went back to her hostel in JNU and narrated the incident to her two friends, who immediately took her to the police station. She was taken to a nearby hospital for medical examination. On the basis of the victim’s complaint, an FIR under Section 376 (punishment for rape) read with 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC was lodged at the Safdarj-ung Enclave police station.
The accused, Salim — an event manager — and Sulaiman, have been arrested and sent to judicial custody by a court, said the officer.
Salim was living in Delhi for the last 10 years and Sulaiman for two years, the officer added.
