Woman files rape plaint, withdraws it hours later


Two incidents of rape were reported within hours from the national Capital, police said on Saturday. In the first case, a 25-year-old nurse was raped near the Raj Nagar Extension in Ghaziabad, while she was returning home on Friday night.

Two men dragged her into a roadside bush near NH-58 and took turns to rape her. They also snatched her mobile phone and filmed the assault. Police said the woman was admitted to a private hospital, with injuries on her face and other body parts.

"She saw the two men following her on the isolated road. She tried calling up her family but the call did not go through," said RS Khoda, Station House Officer of the Sihani Gate police station.

The incident took place at around 10 pm, barely 200 mts from the locality where the woman lives. It was raining heavily when the assault took place, police added.

"She told us that initially she thought that the two accused, 22-23 years old, were trying to snatch her mobile. She handed over her phone but they slapped and punched her multiple times. She said both were drunk at the time," an officer said.

In the second incident, two men allegedly abducted and raped a 25-year-old woman in a moving car for hours on Friday evening. The woman, however, refused to undergo a medical examination and later withdrew the case.

According to the police, two men pulled the woman inside an SUV from outside the Noida Golf Course Metro station at around 6 pm. They raped her for hours before dumping her near Delhi's Akshardham at 2 am the next morning. The woman then called up the police, who took her to the police station and registered a case.

While narrating her ordeal to DNA, the traumatised woman said she was waiting for an autorickshaw at the Metro station when the two men approached her in a Mahindra Scorpio and asked for the way to Sector 18. While she was explaining the route to them, one of them dragged her inside the SUV and drove away, she said.

The woman was taken to various areas in Noida and Delhi, while the accused took turns to rape her. "I was scared. They threw me on the road. I immediately dialled 100. A Delhi Police team reached the spot and brought me to Noida Sector 39 police station," she told DNA.
