According to the police, the victim had arrived at the station with her younger sister late on Tuesday night.

“After the younger sister had volunteered to look around for a locker room, the two accused convinced the victim to come with them to a second-floor waiting room in the VIP arena of the station, near the international tourist information office. They took her to room 201 and raped her there,” said a official.

Cop suspended after test confirmed rape

Cops are checking claims that the woman was known to Hawan, a resident of Tilak Nagar. Pintu Singh, posted with the 8th Railway Protection Special Force battalion in Delhi, has been suspended.

“We arrested the RPSF constable on Wednesday morning after the medical test of the victim confirmed rape. Investigations are on,” said DCP (crime and railways) Sanjay Jain.

Sources said there was some delay in the arrests because the victim’s statement initially appeared a bit contradictory.

Railway officials said that they have decided to take prompt action to send a stern message to the forces.

“We have come to know that there was also a financial dispute between the woman and the two men over a sum of Rs 7 lakh. However, until proven guilty, we have suspended the constable. We are in talks with RPF, RPSF and GRP on how to make the station complex safer,” said a Northern Railway spokesperson.
