Two arrested for abducting, raping, shooting a minor girl

New Delhi: Two persons have been arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl repeatedly for around two weeks after abducting her from her house in west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar area and shooting her when she tried to escape before dumping her in a dry well at Greater Noida, police said today.

The two accused have been identified as Kishan alias Mohit, a friend of the victim, and his associate Vipin. While the third accused, identified as Devender — who is Mohit’s brother, was still at large, senior police official said.

According to police, during interrogation, they said that Mohit had befriended the girl by talking to her regularly over phone.

He took her phone number from a friend and had impressed the girl by claiming himself a rich property dealer in Noida, said police.

On November 21, Mohit and Vipin waylaid the girl while she had gone to purchase milk from a shop near her Uttam Nagar residence and convinced her to come inside their car, they said.

When she did not return home, her relatives registered a missing complaint and soon a case of abduction was registered.

The duo allegedly took her to Greater Noida and confined her in a room, where they allegedly raped her for about 14 days. Later, Devender joined them too, police said.

Later, when they felt she could report the matter to police, they allegedly fired three rounds, of which one bullet hit the girl, and dumped her in a deep dry well, they said.

The girl was rescued on December 6 and rushed to a hospital at Gautam Budh Nagar before being shifted to a Delhi hospital.

All three accused are residents of Greater Noida and Ghaziabad and have criminal cases registered against them, police said, adding efforts were on to nab Devender.

The girl was, earlier, said to be 16-year-old but after verifying her records, she turned out to be 14, police added.
