An American citizen 25 year of age had allegedly been gangraped by a groupie earlier this year in Delhi’s luxury hotel. The victim on Thursday faced an interrogation round by Delhi Police in determining the sequence of events.
The suffered woman joined the session on Thursday for recording her statements under section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) before a Magistrate. She had also undergone a medical examination.
A parallel investigation team had corresponded with the victim of the rape for filling in the gaps in her complaint and for strengthening the case. The woman had mentioned about her dissatisfaction in the slow going trials. She was ready to come to India for identifying the gang of culprits.
On December 8, the police had identified the tourist guide accused of raping the tourist along with his accomplices. He was earlier approached and interrogated while he was in Nepal.
The tourist guide had been reportedly denying his involvement in the crime. He said before the police that the victim had dropped a positive feedback in the travel agency’s inquiry forms that hadn't found him guilty of the crime.
The American woman had alleged that she was raped by the gang for over two long days. The gang had even threatened her with dire consequences. The lady also informed the police about the video act which was recorded by the accused and had been blackmailing her.
