The 37-year-old woman was driven around west Delhi early Friday and later taken to a shop where two more men waited. She was gang-raped there.

In her complaint, the woman said she was gang-raped in a puncture repair shop.

“On the basis of the woman’s complaint, a case of gang-rape and abduction has been registered. All the accused have been arrested,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Pushpendra Kumar.

“The woman was kidnapped in Sagarpur near Paschim Vihar and gang-raped at a shop in Peeragarhi. The shop is about 15 km away from the spot from where she was kidnapped,” said a police officer.

The woman is separated from her husband and lives in Sagarpur along with her three children. She said she left home at 10.30 p.m. on Thursday to fetch coconut water and medicine from a nearby market. She was walking towards the market when a Meru cab stopped next to her.

Two men who were sitting in the rear seat overpowered her and pulled her inside the car. They gagged her and threatened to kill her if she screamed for help.

“The three men (including a driver known to her) drove her around on west Delhi roads for over an hour during which they were talking to somebody on mobile phone,” the officer added.

The woman said two men waited for them at the shop in Peeragarhi. “The five took turns to rape her,” the officer said.

At around 4.30 a.m., the accused let off the woman and threatened her with dire consequences if she approached police.

But the woman informed police. A medical examination confirmed has rape.

Meru cabs spokesperson described the incident unfortunate and said: “Meru provided full support to the police by identifying the location of the vehicle, residence address of the driver and background details. This helped the police confiscate the vehicle and nab the driver within hours.”

India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021.

According to the World Happiness Report 2021 which was released by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, Finland was once again crowned as the world's happiest country. India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021. To make society happy, firstly it is really important to spread awareness on how it is okay to relax, chill and take a break. People tend to normalise overworking, which is so wrong. Of Course, we need a job to live and sustain ourselves but you shouldn't be working yourself to death, and the fact that this is seen as normal is really worrying. You spend more hours at work than you do awake at home, so if those hours are drenched in misery then sadness basically becomes the norm. A study from Gallup (2017) found that happier employees were more engaged, which resulted in improved customer relationships, and a 20 percent increase in sales.

Also, lowering down the crime level would act as a major factor towards a happy society. People who witness crimes, or come across evidence of a crime in their local area, can suffer anxiety and may feel demoralised or powerless. We should also teach them to stop judging people by materialistic things and accept everyone with all their flaws. Media plays an important role in making society happy because they have the power of reaching out to billions of people and helping them out through a solution-based approach.
