New Delhi: Investigators questioned four
persons detained in connection with the gang rape of a
30-year-old call-centre employee for another day on Tuesday even as
they claimed to have achieved some success in identifying the
make of the vehicle used in the crime.
"We are still questioning the four men who were
detained yesterday. The vehicle make has been more or less
identified," H G S Dhaliwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police
(South), said.

The detained persons were "very relevant" to the case,
he said.

The victim was walking towards her home in Moti
village near Dhaula in south Delhi early last Wednesday
morning along with one of her colleagues when the men in a
vehicle abducted her and took turns to rape her. She was later
dumped in Mongolpuri after which she approached police.
Investigators have been groping in the dark for the
past few days despite 15 special teams being formed to nab the
culprits. Two sketches were released by police besides
questioning several suspects, surfing through CCTV footage and
recording statements of three witnesses.

Investigators had also gone through mobile phone
records of a number of "possible" suspects residing in
Mongolpuri area as they believe that the culprits were "very
familiar" with the locality and they could be staying there.
