Reacting to the rape of a Danish woman in the capital on Tuesday Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia on Friday said that the police is responsible for these mishaps, and therefore the station house officer of the area should be suspended.

“The SHO needs to be suspended as it is his responsibility to make sure such incidents do not take place,’ said Sisodia.

“Till the time the police do not get this message, women will keep getting raped in the capital. Therefore, it is very important that we take this step,” he said.

A 51-year-old Danish woman alleged she was gang raped and robbed by a group of eight men near the New Delhi Railway Station.

The victim told the police that she was gang raped and beaten after being robbed by eight men, after she lost track of the hotel she was staying in.

Though the victim flew to Copenhagen early this morning, she has alleged that she was attacked as she was seeking directions to her hotel. The suspects are said to have then taken her to an undisclosed location and raped her.

The men also took her money and valuables which she was carrying. The victim, however, managed to get to her hotel, and informed the police about the incident.

Police have arrested four men in connection with the case. Police said the victim had refused to undergo a medical examination before flying off to Denmark.
