Just hours after Delhi's police chief Amulya Patnaik said there was a dip in heinous crimes in the city, the case of a 15-year-old girl raped by six men in east district's park of Madhu Vihar on January 8 was reported on Friday.
According to police, a 15-year-old girl was gangraped on Monday night, at a public park's guard room. They befriended her and convinced her to go out with them.
In her complaint to the police, the victim told that she was talking a walk outside her house when one of the accused lured her to a nearby park on the pretext of offering her food.
On the basis of the girl's complaint, police arrested the main accused and on his instance, the other five were also nabbed from the same locality.
They stayed there until evening and when it was dark around 6.00 p.m, Sachin called up his three more friends and asked to join them in the park, the officer said. "They took the victim there and sexually assaulted her", he added.
The police officer, however, claimed that only three accused gang-raped her and the other three played helping hands in the crime.
Before leaving the victim, the accused also threatened dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone, he said.
But, the victim narrated her ordeal before her parents, following which the police was informed.
