New Delhi: Putting the security of employee into the court of BPO companies who usually operate at odd hours, the Delhi Police on Wednesday said they would get strict with the rules for these companies.

Explaining to the media how they caught the two youth allegedly involved in a gang rape case that occurred in Dhaula Kuan here last week, the police said primary responsibility of the safety of employees was of their employer.

In the day, investigators apprehended Shamshad and Usman, who are in their early twenties, from Haryana`s Mewat last night while
one of their accomplices surrendered in a Ballabgarh court in
connection with a cow slaughtering case two days ago.

The incident took place in the wee hours of November
26 when the Mizo woman was walking towards her home in Moti
village near Dhaula in south Delhi 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.

Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta said he was personally involved in the probe when he visited the spot of the incident for clues.

“The accused didn’t leave any trail,” he said. They have a history of rapes as well, he informed.

"We have arrested two persons. We have learnt that
another person has surrendered in a Haryana court. We are
looking for the other two accused," H G S Dhaliwal, Deputy
Commissioner of Police (South) said.

They were caught from Mewat region.

Sources said Shamshad and Usman have a criminal
background and were allegedly involved in at least three cases
of rape earlier. "These people have criminal background. They
were involved in rape cases earlier," they said.

"They matched the sketches also," the sources said.

Investigators have impounded the truck which was
allegedly used in the crime.

Asked how investigators zeroed in on the two suspects,
a senior police official said they have ascertained the
movement of the accused in the locality on the fateful day
through technical surveillance.

More than 500 people have been questioned in the case
besides scanning of hundreds of vehicles. Around 400
pick-up vans were scanned in Mongolpuri market itself.

Investigators had been groping in the dark for the
past few days despite 15 special teams being formed to nab the
culprits. Three sketches were released by police besides
questioning several suspects, surfing through CCTV footage and
recording statements of three witnesses.

They 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.
