4 years after December 16 rape, another woman raped in moving car

16rape1New Delhi: Exactly four years after the December 16 gang rape came to light, another case of rape has been reported from Delhi’s Moti Bagh area.

The survivor, a 20-year-old, had come to Delhi looking for a job, was allegedly raped by a taxi driver.

Sources said that the woman was waiting for a taxi near AIIMS when a cab driver offered her lift to Noida on Thursday.

Midway, the driver stopped the car at a secluded place near Moti Bagh in South Delhi and allegedly raped her. However, the girl managed to raise an alarm after she saw a police patrol.

Sensing trouble, the driver fled from the spot, leaving his car behind. The girl was rescued and taken to the nearest police station where she filed a complaint.

A NewsX report stated that the police have arrested the accused and seized the vehicle. The authorities are conducting further investigations.


The incident took place exactly four years after a 23-year-old female physiotherapy student was gang-raped in a moving bus, while her friend was mercilessly thrashed.
