Gurugram: Woman pulled out of car, raped while husband held at gunpoint

A rape epidemic has pocked Haryana with a brazen crime in Gurugram adding to the grim litany. Four men abducted a woman who was returning home from a wedding and one of them sexually assaulted her after the victim’s husband got out of the car to urinate.

The accused have been arrested. The incident follows a string of such violence against women in parts of Haryana like Faridabad, Jind, Fatehabad, Hisar and Kurukshetra over the past month.

The crime took place at around 9pm on Sunday near sector 56 in Gurugram. The 22-year-old victim, a resident of the tony South City area, had gone with her husband to attend a family function in sector 51.

“After the function got over around 9pm, we decided to return home and my brother-in-law gave us a ride in his Maruti Ertiga car to drop us at our South City home. When we reached near Business Park in sector 56, my husband asked for the car to be stopped so he could step out for urination,” said the victim.

While her husband was relieving himself, two cars halted next to theirs and four men came out.

“They asked us why we had stopped there. We told them the reason but they started assaulting us after hearing our dialect which had a hint of Bangla. Meanwhile, one of the accused looked inside the car and as soon as he saw a woman inside, he dragged her out and took her behind some bushes,” said the victim’s husband.

“By then, the other three accused had taken us at gunpoint. We requested them to let her go but to no avail.” His wife cried out for help as the accused dragged her behind the bushes.

“The accused threatened to kill me and my husband while I was crying. He covered my mouth and raped me,” the victim said.

After committing the crime, the rapist tried to escape from the spot. He ran to the other side of the road while his three accomplices sped away in two cars. The victim’s husband managed to note down the licence plate number of one of the vehicles (HR29Y1160) which helped police capture the accused.
The four have been identified as Deshvir, Dharmender, Pawan and the rapist Sanjeet. All of them are residents of Johalka village near Sohna in Gurugram.

“We have registered an FIR under IPC sections 376, 323, 506 and 34 and arrested the accused,” said Manish Sehgal, ACP and chief PRO of Gurugram Police.

This incident raises concerns as a large number of working women and girls travel in the night between Delhi, Gurugram and adjoining Faridabad. Following a series of sexual violence in parts of the state, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar is under pressure to shore up the law and order situation.

In what appeared to be a rerun of Delhi’s Nirbhaya case, a teenager was gang-raped and her body mutilated in Haryana’s Jind on January 14. The 15-year-old had gone missing after leaving home for tuitions. Her mutilated body was found with severe injuries in her private parts and signs of brutality.

The same day it emerged that a three-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 15-year-old boy in Hisar.

The chief minister said in his home district Karnal this month that his government has recommended the death penalty for those involved in raping girls below 12 years of age. “We have directed the police department to take strict action against culprits.

In case of rape or gang-rape incident taking place, our priority is to arrest the accused in the shortest possible time,” he also said when he came to Gurugram on Monday to inaugurate two underpasses.
