Two women from Tanzania were allegedly gang-raped after being drugged in south Delhi’s Sarojini Nagar late on Friday. Police have arrested a 26-year-old disc jockey and his friend.
The victims were in the capital on student visa. Police said the accused have been identified as Kunal who lives in north Delhi’s Shastri Nagar, and Satish Singh, 27, a resident of south Delhi’s RK Puram. Satish works as an event manager with a private company.
“While the women alleged that they were raped, the accused in their counter allegation claimed that the victims filed the complaint following a dispute over money,” said a police officer.
Around 4.30 pm on Friday, a call was received at the police control room regarding a quarrel between two groups in Sarojini Nagar.
On the spot, the Tanzanian women alleged that they were raped by two men at their friend’s flat. The women were taken to Sarojini Nagar police station where their statement was registered. Accordingly, a case of rape was registered and the two accused were held.
In their complaint to police, the women claimed that they met the accused at a discotheque of a hotel in south-east Delhi’s Nehru Place. Kunal and Satish allegedly befriended the women and convinced them to accompany them to their friend’s flat in Sarojini Nagar.
“It is alleged that the accused purchased a bottle of liquor and shared it with the two women in their car. The women were then taken to the flat where they were raped,” the officer added.
Later, an argument broke out between them over money and the victims called police.
Despite claiming to be innocent, Kunal and Satish were arrested and produced before a local court. They were sent to Tihar Jail on Saturday on 14 days’ judicial custody.
