New Delhi: The leader of a five-member gang
which had allegedly abducted and raped a 30-year-old call
centre employee here, was tonight arrested from neighbouring
Haryana, police said.

Kamru alias Mobile (25) was "arrested from Lakhuwas
village in Sohna police station area of Gurgaon at around 9:30
pm," a senior Delhi Police official said.

With this, police claimed it has arrested all the five
youths hailing from Dhaujj Village of Haryana`s Mewat who
allegedly abducted and raped a Mizo woman in south Delhi`s
Dhaula Kuan on November 26.

The first arrests were made by police on December 2 when
they apprehended Usman and Shamshad from Dhaujj. Shahid,
another suspect, had surrendered to the police in Faridabad in
connection with another case and was later arrested.

The fourth one -- Iqbal alias `Bada Billi` (big cat) --
was apprehended on December 4 from Fatehpur Beri in Sohna
district of Haryana by a team of Delhi Police.

Kamru, the gang leader, has once earlier managed to give
slip to police despite a team managing to spot him.

A Delhi court earlier today sent Shahid alias `Chhota
Billi` and Iqbal to Tihar Jail under judicial custody for two
days for their identification by the victim, while remanding
Shamshad and Usman in five days of police custody for their
interrogation.

Shamshad and Usman were identified by the victim on
Saturday.

The incident took place when the BPO employee was walking
towards her residence in Moti village near Dhaula Kuan in
South Delhi along with one of her colleagues after being
dropped by their office cab. The gang forced her into their
vehicle and sped it off with her.

They allegedly took turns to rape her in the moving
vehicle and later dumped her near Mongolpuri in West Delhi.
