A woman from Delhi was abducted and gang raped by five men for two days in Ghaziabad, police said on Wednesday, adding that one of the accused has been arrested while questioning is underway for the four others.
The 38-year-old victim, a resident of Nand Nagri area of the national capital, is battling for her life in a hospital.
"On Tuesday, information was received regarding a woman lying on the road following which a police team rushed to the spot and she was taken to the hospital for the treatment," said Nipun Agarwal, SP, Ghaziabad city.
"The victim told the police that she came to Ghaziabad the previous day to attend her brother's birthday party. After the party when she was waiting to take an auto-rickshaw home, she was picked by five men who were known to her," he added.
The SP said that a case has been registered based on a statement given by the victim's brother.
"Initial investigation has revealed that there was some property dispute with the accused," Agarwal added.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has sent a notice to the SSP Ghaziabad seeking details of the incident.
The notice has been issued to Ghaziabad Senior Superintendent of Police seeking an action taken report and a copy of the FIR along with details of arrests made.
DCW chief Swati Maliwal said, "The incident is very horrific and disturbing. It reminds me of the Nirbhaya case. All accused must be arrested immediately and strict action taken against them. I fail to understand how long women and children be subjected to such extreme brutality.
