Two Tanzanian women were allegedly raped by two men in south Delhi's Sarojini Nagar area following which the accused have been arrested, police said on Saturday.

The accused identified as Satish and Kunal, both 27-year-old, have been arrested. While Satish is a resident of RK Puram, Kunal lives in Shastri Nagar in the city.

"We had received a PCR call about an altercation at a Sarojini Nagar house around 4:30 pm yesterday following which a police team reached the spot. All the four persons were found in the room. The duo was arrested after the women gave statements that the two men had raped them," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) BS Jaiswal.

According to police sources, the two women told investigators that they befriended the accused outside a hotel in South Delhi, following which they accompanied them to a quarter in Sarojini Nagar.

"All four of them consumed liquor following which the two men sexually assaulted them. However, the two accused have denied the allegation and claimed that they had a dispute over something following which the women made a PCR call," a senior police official said.

A case has been registered in this regard.

The two men were arrested yesterday evening itself. They were produced before a magistrate this morning who remanded them in judicial custody.
