Delhi: In a grim throwback to the horrific gang-rape and torture of a para-medic student in a moving bus on December 16 four years ago which had shaken the country, a 20-year-old girl, who was on a job-hunt, was allegedly raped in a car in South Delhi's Moti Bagh area on Thursday night.
The 20-year-old girl, who later narrated the incident to the police, had come from Noida to Delhi in search of a job.
After searching for a job the whole day, the girl was waiting for the bus at around 9 pm last night near All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).
A Maruti car stopped by and the driver offered to drop her to Noida.
Since the girl was not familiar with the roads of Delhi, the driver easily took her to a secluded place and raped her.
It is believed that the victim was raped between 11 pm to 12 am in the Moti Bagh area by the cab driver.
When the driver went to ease himself, the girl came out of the car and cried for help.
The girl somehow reached the police, who were patrolling near the South campus area. The PCR van took the victim to the police station and a medical check up was conducted.
The accused driver had fled from the spot after leaving the car, which was carrying a Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) sticker.
However, the driver was later arrested by the police.
The Delhi Police have registered a case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 357 and 376 and arrested the accused from his friend’s house.
The Delhi Police today said that it would try to file a chargesheet as soon as possible in the Moti Bagh rape case in which a 20-year old girl was allegedly raped in a moving car in South Delhi’s Moti Bagh area.
The police would also request for a trial in a fast track court, Deputy Commissioner of Police Ishwar Singh said in a press briefing today.
“We will try to file the chargesheet as soon as possible and request for a trial in a fast track court,” Singh told the media.
