Three Held For Abducting Mizo Woman

By Raj Shekhar

New Delhi, Jun 23
: Three men-two of them students and the other a private company executive- were arrested for the alleged abduction of an 18-year-old Mizo woman from outside a club in south Delhi with the intention to rape.

The men drove her around town for close to two hours before dumping her at Chirag Dilli flyover. They didn't rape her, said cops, because they didn't find an isolated spot.

Cops, however, refused to elaborate on the matter.

The woman said in her statement that she had been to the said club in Vasant Kunj for a party which ran until early Thursday morning.

When she left, the three men, who had probably come to the club, too, followed her. She quickened her pace but the drunk men pounced on her and dragged her to their car.

They tried to rape her in the car, but couldn't as she resisted. They then drove around for two hours in search of an isolated spot.

They even called up one of their friends in Munirka, asking him to join them; but that didn't happen, too. When it became brighter, the men dumped her at the Chirag Dilli flyover and fled. They, however, snatched her cellphone to stop her from calling the cops.

A passerby came to her rescue and helped her reach the cops, who then took her to the hospital. A case was lodged based on the woman's statement and CCTV footage from the club, and the three men were arrested late on Thursday.

They were produced before a magistrate on Friday, who sent them to judicial custody.
