New Delhi, Jan 2 : A youth Rajesh Singh and his cousin, arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl since December 2011 after befriending her on a social networking site, have been remanded in judicial custody for 14 days.



Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Rao sent 24-year-old Rajesh Singh and his cousin Naveen Singh, 22, arrested on the night of December 31, 2012 by Delhi police to Tihar jail under judicial custody till January 15.

“Both the accused are remanded to 14 days judicial custody. Accused be produced on January 15,” the court said, while sending the two to Tihar jail on Tuesday.
The police had sought their judicial custody for 14 days

saying the investigation in the case is yet to be completed.

“It is, therefore, requested that accused persons may kindly be remanded to 14 days judicial remand, for completion of investigation in the same case,” the police had said.

The agency had told the court that the girl had met Rajesh through a social networking site at the end of 2011 and they were in a relationship till July 2012 when they broke up.

Rajesh’s cousin Naveen, however, befriended the girl to restore their friendship but himself fell in love with her, the police said adding the two entered into a relationship.

However, after Rajesh found about their relationship, Naveen broke up with the girl and she went into depression and on December 31, 2012 she lodged an FIR accusing them of raping her since December 2011, the police told the court.

While Naveen is a computer engineer with an IT company, Rajesh works in the human resources department of a blue-chip technical and consultation multinational firm.

The two have been booked under sections 376 (rape), 509 (making gestures with an intent to insult a woman), 34 (common intention) of the IPC and under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
