In connection with the 21-year-old gangrape victim who was allegedly raped by five persons in Rohtak district, with two of the accused also involved in the first assault on her three years ago in Bhiwani, DGP KP Singh on Tuesday said that three people have been arrested and soon two more will be arrested.
He also assured that strict action will be taken against the accused.
In the earlier case in 2013, the victim had registered an abduction case and later changed her statement saying she was gang raped, said Singh.
The young woman, a Dalit, who is a student at a college in Rohtak, was gangraped by some persons in Bhiwani three years ago.
Two of the accused in the Bhiwani incident, who are out on bail, again committed the same crime along with three other men in Rohtak on Wednesday, police said.
After being allegedly threatened by the accused to take back the complaint in the Bhiwani incident, the victim’s family had shifted to Rohtak, the woman’s mother has told the police.
Police said the victim’s family told them she had gone to college on Wednesday morning and did not return. She was later found unconscious near Sukhpura Chowk on Wednesday night with her clothes torn, after which she was rushed to Rohtak Civil Hospital.
The woman’s family has alleged that she was gangraped by the men as they did not withdraw the rape case against them.
Police said two accused in the rape incident in Bhiwani were arrested in 2013. However, they were out on bail.
They took her inside the car, drugged her and then raped her while she was unconscious, police said.
