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.”

With some of them almost a photographic reflection of daybreak after rain, artist Purnendu Mandal’s canvasses — currently on exhibition at Triveni Kala Sangam here — are a deluge of vivid warm colours that capture a city’s landscape after rain.

“It is almost like looking outside a window, but through a work of art,” Mandal told IANS.

Mandal’s 15 acrylic- and oil-on-canvass artworks – collectively titled “Reflections 3” – document the subtleties of urban life during the rains — first light in a city, storms, rickshaw-pullers and bus drivers resuming activity after a rainy day, and building silhouettes reflecting in the water-filled puddles.

Also included are visual effects of the monsoon like rain drops, fog, wet climate, reflections in water and shades of dampness.

To that extent, “Good Morning Kolkata” (2018), a painting of a tram on a damp Kolkata street, with old buildings and bundles of electric wires adding to the realistic depiction, reflects a day in the city as one would experience it.

For Mandal, it is about making his canvasses a literal window to the seasonal changes a city undergoes.

“I try to paint cities season-wise. This exhibition shows the beauty of a city after and during the monsoon,” Mandal told IANS.

The West Bengal-born artist has participated in 16 international group art exhibitions in Indonesia, UK, USA, UAE, Thailand, Taiwan, Bangladesh and Nepal, in addition to showcasing his work at Indian galleries including Jehangir Art Gallery, Nehru Centre Art Gallery, Lalit Kala Akademi, AIFACS Gallery, Triveni Art Gallery, Chemould Art Gallery, and Chitra Kala Parishath.
