Mumbai: Around the world, rape and sexual abuse are everyday violent occurrences — affecting close to a billion women and girls over their lifetimes. However, despite the pervasiveness of these crimes, laws are insufficient, inconsistent, not systematically enforced and, sometimes, promote violence.
On Monday three people were arrested for allegedly gang-raping an Uzbek woman in a moving car. A case has been registered at Vasant Kunj police station against the accused.
Police said that an Uzbek woman (31) has filed a complaint against a 25-year-old, who along with his two accomplices allegedly gang-raped and assaulted her on August 10.
Both, the prime accused and the victim, know each other. The victim has been living in Delhi for the last six months whereas the prime accused is a resident of Gurugram, said police.
The police said that an investigation has been initiated. However, no arrests have been made so far.
