-The woman told the police that the accused forced her to consume alcohol. The five accused have been arrested
A 26-year old Nepalese woman walked the streets of Delhi nude, begging for help on Sunday morning after escaping her rapists who thrashed her and confined her to a room in East Delhi.
The woman scaled the wall of the first floor apartment in Pandav Nagar and jumped to escape the torture after being allegedly raped by five men. As she walked on the roads nude, passersby stood as mute spectators and did not even offer her clothes.
The police said all five accused have been arrested.
According to the police, a person who saw her jumping from the balcony of the apartment informed the police at 5:45 am. CCTV footage from one of the cameras in the locality showed the woman walking on the road naked, with men walking by but none helping her or giving her clothes.
She was finally seen taking the help of an auto-rickshaw driver who offered to drop her. A sedan car also passed by but none of them stopped to help and others watching her talking to the auto driver.
"The Emergency Response vehicle of the police rushed to the location and took her to to the LBS hospital. She had suffered minor injuries on her legs while jumping from the apartment. She resides in the Munirka area,"a senior police officer said.
In her complaint, the woman told the police that the five accused forced her to consume alcohol. The men have been identified as Naveen Kumar, Prateek Kumar, Vikas Mehra, Sarvjeet and Lakshya. All five work at a call centre.
The victim reached Pandav Nagar with one of her friends, Vikas, who had invited her for a party at a friend's residence. On the way, she met two other friends of his and the trio reached their friend's house in Pandav Nagar where two other accused were also present. Vikas told the girl he had to head out for some work and would be back later.
