Accused Work In Top IT Firms, Sent To Tihar

New Delhi: Just hours before Nirbhaya's ashes were immersed in the Ganga, a 17-year-old girl studying in class XI of a prominent south Delhi school was allegedly sedated and raped by two men at a New Year's party in the upscale Safdarjung Enclave area of south Delhi, police sources told TOI on Tuesday. 
    The two accused, who work in le
ading IT companies, were arrested late at night after the girl approached the police. They live in Sarojini Nagar with their families. Both are in their late 20s. While one is a computer engineer with an IT company, the other works in the HR department of a blue-chip tech and consulting multinational, an officer said. 
    The accused were produced in Saket court on Tuesday afternoon and later sent to Tihar jail. The whole operation was kept under wraps by the police. TOI attempted to call senior police officers to confirm the report and also sent text messages but got no response. 
    Sources in Delhi police revealed 
that the girl had said in her statement that one of the accused had befriended her on a social networking site a few months ago. He had expressed his wish to meet the victim many times. On the 31st, he convinced the girl to meet at a south Delhi market. He then coaxed her to accompany him in his car to an undisclosed location. Rape confirmed, accused confess to sexual assault s per the girl's statement, the accused gave her a drink which was laced with a heavy dose of sedatives after which she began to feel dizzy. 
    The girl alleged that the accused then took turns to rape her inside the flat and then left her alone. They even threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone. 
    However, the girl managed to flee from their clutches after the accused left her alone and went out. She rushed to Safdarjung Enclave police station after taking an auto and reported the incident to the cops. 
    The stunned cops immediately formed six teams and dispatched them to various locations on the basis of the information provided by the victim. 

    The operation was supervised by the joint commissioner of police southern range, Vivek Gogia and DCP south Chhaya Sharma, the source said. The raiding teams were being led by additional DCP south P S Kushwah. 
    Meanwhile, the girl's medical examination was conducted at Safdarjung Hospital which confirmed rape, a source said. The girl was provided with medical help and counseling and a case of outraging a woman's modesty and criminal intimidation was registered on the basis of her statement. The call records of the victim helped cops get the location of the accused and one of the teams nabbed the two and placed them under arrest. 
    During interrogation, the accused accepted their involvement before the police and confessed to having lured the girl on pretext of meeting on New Years Eve, police said.
