The national capital was shamed by another gangrape when two girls, including a minor, were raped by five teenagers in front of their male friends in outer Delhi's Aman Vihar area, police said.
The incident took place on Wednesday around 8.30 PM at an isolated spot near Mundka metro station in outer Delhi’s Kirari when the girls and their male friends were out on a walk, a senior police officer said.
The youth beat up the accompanying boys and scared them away before they took turns raping their victims.
The accused spotted one of the girls in compromising position with her male friend following which they beat them up and held hostage, the officer said.
Then they took turns to rape the two girls, aged 18 and 17 years, in an isolated park near Mundka metro station, the officer said.
They threatened the victims of dire consequences if they reported the matter to police, the officer said.
The suspects and the girls reportedly lived in the same locality, but were not known to each other.
A medical examination of the girls confirmed rape and a case under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 376 (punishment for rape) IPC and relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) has been registered, the officer said.
Four of the five accused have been arrested by Thursday night and police are trying to determine whether they are minors, the officer added.
