A man has been arrested in connection with gang rape of a minor girl a week back in Sitapur district. Four of the other accused are still absconding.

The Imalia Sultanpur village rape came to light on Monday when a video of the incident went viral on the social media. The girl told police that the accused made the video of the act on their mobile phones and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the incident.

The police said that the incident took place on September 7 when the girl was returning home from the market.

Two youths, Sheebu and Nazim of a nearby village, dragged the girl to a nearby cane field where three others were waiting and all five gang raped her, the police said.

A case has been registered and Sheebu was arrested on Monday.

Sitapur Superintendent of Police R.P. Singh and Additional SP (South) Rajiv Dixit, visited the village amid the tension over the gang rape and deployed police force in the village as a precautionary measure.

“We will arrest the remaining accused soon and ensure strict punishment for them. The girl has been sent for medical examination,” the SP said.

Murder

A 29-year-old woman was strangled by her husband after she confronted him over his alleged extra marital affair in Delhi’s Paharganj. The woman was found in an unconscious state on Thursday morning with ligature marks on her neck. When she was rushed to the hospital she was declared brought dead.

Suspicion fell on the husband as the children of the deceased were with their grandparents and the husband was missing post midnight.

A photo of the deceased’s husband was taken from their house and the police began to trace the suspect.

The accused Sunny, an e-rickshaw driver, tried to flee in his vehicle. The police team started stopping e-rickshaw drivers in the vicinity and tried to identify the suspect through his photograph.

Meanwhile, a policeman saw a person who turned around his e-rickshaw and tried to escape from the spot where the team was checking the vehicles but the police team apprehended the suspect.

“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to having strangulated his wife with her chunni after having a heated altercation over the issue of his extra marital relation,” said Sanjay Bhatia, DCP Central Delhi.
