A 19-year-old girl has been accused of raping a 25-year-old woman with a sex toy. The survivor had alleged that the accused had forcefully committed anal sex upon her.
The name of the accused is Shivani who has now been sent to Tihar jail for judicial custody by the Karkardooma Court. The arrest is made under the Sec 164 of Criminal Procedure Code and she has been charged under the Sec 377 of IPC as well as under the provisions of Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act.
Delhi police have arrested four people for allegedly raping and blackmailing the victim, including the accused woman on charges under Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, making it the first such development in the country ever after the Supreme Court decriminalised same-sex relations in September last year.
The accused was produced before the Karkardooma Court where the police was granted a day to interrogate her and thereafter she was sent for judicial custody in Tihar jail.
The victim, who had come to Delhi from the Northeast for work, has alleged that the accused raped her and subjected her to repeated sexual and physical assaults.
According to the allegations made, the victim was taken to an apartment in Delhi’s Dilshad Colony and gangraped there along with others who have been arrested.
The victim who belongs to one of the eastern Indian states came to Delhi for job but her bad time started in March 2018 when she left job to begin her own business. She attended a training session in Rajpura, Punjab, and then was asked to pay Rs 1.5 lakhs for investment which her father arranged by taking loan. She was told to search for partners at bus stops, railway stations and other public places. While searching for the partner, she met a person named Rohit who told her that he worked in HCL and expressed her willingness to invest in her business.
The victim was then taken to a flat in Dilshad colony where she was s*xually assaulted by Rohit and his friend Rahul and videos were also made to blackmail her. Firstly they forced her to fulfill their demands and then she was sent to other clients. The accused girl was always in the flat and sometimes she did try to come close to the victim but the latter refused to obey her for which she was also thrashed by the former.
The victim wants the other girl to be punished as well because when she was tied to the bed, the accused was using a toy in order to make her private part ready for the clients. The accused was not forced for anything; however, she was enjoying this horrific act.
The members of Paramjyoti Sewa foundation have played an important role in freeing the victim and both the male accused along with one more accomplice Sagar have been arrested.
Earlier, the Seemapuri police refused to file a case against the female accused despite the fact that she was found at the same place where the victim was kept as hostage for more than 2 months.
According to Delhi Police data, till March 2018 as many as 28 cases have been registered under section 377 (unnatural offences) of the Indian Penal Code. From 2015 to March 2018, more than 543 cases of sodomy were registered at various police stations.
It is high time for girls not to believe strangers, no matter how kind he or she is for the first time you meet.
