NEW DELHI: One of the three men who abducted and gang-raped a Gurgaon mall worker in the early hours of Sunday may be a suspended constable. Although his role in the case has not been verified, police are searching for him. On Wednesday, they also announced the arrest of another suspect, Nauseem Alam (25), a native of Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh.
The accused trapped the woman and her elder sister outside Sahara Mall in Gurgaon on the pretext of a ride home. They later dumped the older woman near Okhla tank and gang-raped her sister at a flat in the Shaaheen Bagh area of south Delhi. The house owner, Nadeem, is also a suspect in the case. Sources said Nauseem had named constable Junaid, who was suspended after being accused of misconduct during his posting at Barakhamba Road police station.A senior police officer confirmed that the initial probe pointed to Junaid’s role in the case. The victim’s sister had raised an alarm and informed police after being left on the road. But within two hours of the crime, the victim was dropped home by the accused. Police registered a case of gang-rape on the basis of the victim’s statement and began investigations. They raided the Shaaheen Bagh house belonging to Nadeem but found it locked from outside. They broke open the door and found vital clues about the accused.
