New Delhi: Delhi police have arrested three men for thrashing, sexually assaulting, and robbing a 26-year-old man in a moving car in east Delhi, an official said on Thursday.
According to the complainant, the victim and his girlfriend were at a cafe in Vikas Marg, where they ordered wine, for which they received a bill of Rs 2,600. He objected to it and this led to heated arguments, during which the cafe staff verbally and physically assaulted him.
The victim was then forcefully taken into a car, where he was beaten while being driven towards Meerut. Upon reaching Gang Nahar, the accused physically abused him, and they robbed Rs 8,000, his car key, and mobile phone.
“Subsequently, they abandoned the injured victim near Vivekanand Mahila College, Vivek Vihar. His family members took him to Dr. Hedgewar Hospital for treatment," said an official.
The perpetrators also recorded a video of the victim and then attempted to extort Rs 50,000 from him in exchange for deleting the video.
According to the police, Preet Vihar police station received a call from the hospital at around 2 a.m. on July 28 reporting an incident. A police team reached the hospital, where they found an injured victim undergoing treatment and was unable to give a statement.
Subsequently, on July 29, the complainant provided his statement to the police, following which the police registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC, the official said.
A manhunt has been initiated to nab other accused in the case.
