17-year-old raped in Noida, rapists shoot MMS video clip

Four persons were arrested for allegedly gangraping a 17-year-old girl in a car in Noida on Friday night.

Rahul Arya, Saurabh Chauhan, Himanshu Sharma and Sunil Rawat were arrested on Sunday, and a hunt is on for a fifth accused Neeraj Singh.

The girl, a student of Class X, knew Rahul and met him on Friday afternoon near Priyadarshi Park in Sector-12, police said. He allegedly told her that it was his birthday the previous day and there was a party at Saurabh's house in Gijhod village.

"The other four friends were waiting at the house. The five men and the girl consumed alcohol here. Then they forced the girl into Saurabh's car and gangraped her behind Krishna Hotel in the village between 7.30 and 8.30 pm. They dropped the girl at Priyadarshi Park at 9 pm, and threatened her of dire consequences if she spoke to anyone about the incident," said Anant Dev, Superintendent of Police (City).

The girl lives with her mother and stepfather in Sector-40. Her biological father runs an electrical shop in Sector-12.

"She had a good relationship with her father. She would meet him often in Sector-12, which is where she met Rahul who was a resident of the same area. A medical examination has confirmed rape. It is not clear if the victim was beaten up," said Dev.

In their statement to police, the girl's family alleged that she was beaten up. The accused had raped her earlier as well, they said.

"On May 24 last year, Rahul met her in Sector-12 and took her to meet the same friends. They took her to the room in Gijhod village, gangraped her and dumped her near Sector-49. They told her that they had filmed her and would post the MMS video clip on the Internet if she spoke to anyone," the girl's mother told Newsline.
