A 25-year-old woman was allegedly raped by three men in a house in Mumbai following which they were arrested, police said on Tuesday.
The accused, identified as Jaipal, met the woman near a toddy shop on Saturday night and took her to his house under the pretext of offering some work. Later, Jaipal called his two of friends and gang-raped the woman in his house.
Later, she lodged a complaint based on which a case of gangrape was registered and the trio was arrested Monday, they added.
In another incident, a 19-year-old student of a college was allegedly raped by a man in Maharashtra's Nagpur district, around 820 kms from here, the police said Sunday. The accused and his friend were arrested within hours of the incident which occurred on the night of November 2 along the Hyderabad-Jabalpur highway at Hudkeshwar, an official said.
The woman and her male friend are pursuing B.Com in a college and are classmates. The incident occurred when two men spotted the victim and her male friend sitting together behind bushes at an isolated place, he said. The men then attacked the duo and one of them dragged the victim's friend to the road while the other man raped her behind the bushes, the official said.
Before leaving, the accused told the woman that his two friends would be coming in a short while and told her not to leave the spot, the official said. In the meantime, the male friend tried to stop vehicles plying on the highway for help, but to no avail, he said. The official said the male friend couldn't summon help immediately, as his mobile phone was switched off. "After sometime, a truck driver stopped his vehicle and took him to the nearest eating joint (dhaba) from where he contacted the police," he said.
