New Delhi: Delhi testified to another episode of carnality as a woman was kidnapped here in a Meru cab by three people, one of whom was known to her, and then driven to a shop where she was gang-raped, police said on Saturday.
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.”
The incident that had happened in the capital town on last Sunday was dangerously shocking. A small businessman – Mr. Druv Raj Tyagi, a resident of Moti Nagar, West Delhi, was stabbed brutally who died the very next day. The reason behind this gruesome attack was that the business man’s daughter was often indecently taunted and eve-teased by a group of boys from other community in the locality. This had become a cause of serious concerns for the family members. On that fateful night, the father was returning from a clinic with his daughter who was quite sick. When a gang of youths passed indecent remarks upon the daughter, the father could not tolerate it, he felt very humiliated. He immediately determined himself to approach the parents of one of the main boys.
The father of the boy, Mr. Jahangir Khan, instead of apologizing and pacifying Mr. Tyagi and taking his son to task started hurling the abuses at him. Very soon many other Jahangir’s relatives joined him and started thrashing the man. In the meantime, Jahangir took out a knife and stabbed multiple times in his abdomen. Hearing the loud cries of the father, the son – Mr. Anmol Tyagi immediately rushed to the spot. But Jahangir Khan again aggressively attacked the boy with the same knife. Due to deep injuries in Tyagi’s liver, kidney, and intestines, he died on Monday while the son is still battling for the life.
Such cases of brutal attacks or sexual overtures on the particular community are increasingly happening across the country. No matter how heinous the crimes, no matter how brutal the sexual torture, they never become “Kathua and Dadri”, nor do any leaders visit the scene of the crime to console the aggrieved victims of the majority community. Nor any noted NGOs, nor elite groups come out in protest and condemn the incidents. Even the bloodiest incidents of Ankit Saxena, Pankaj Narang, Sunita, Riya Gautam and so on could not evoke any sympathy of our celebrities and political leaders, nor of‘AWARD-WAPSI’ gang. Needless to say, hardly any candle marches are held and placards displayed in condemnation against the criminals if the victims are from the majority community. Are the pains and agonies of the majority less hurtful and the perpetrators less sinful? Is this not disgustingly inhumane trend?
Please note, not just the only women are unsafe in India. The time is not far off when the whole major population of the country will be screaming for the safety and security in their own land. How did Kashmir happen, how our people were tortured and deported, and how did we react? What with our secularist brothers who have learned all along to hate the nation itself! Yes, they have moved a step further by coining the unheard term — Hindu terror.
We are very WEAK, we are very timid — we have no more “kshatriya blood running in our veins” to defend ourselves and to protect our own land of birth. Kerala, West Bengal and some pockets of Assam are already up in arms against us.
Alas, our inaction, our meek silence and our deceptive “chant of secularism” has almost put the major populace under the ominous threat.
