Delhi cops rescue gang-rape victim

Police rescued a 24-year-old gang-rape victim from a car in New Delhi and arrested four men on suspicion of attacking her, officials say.

The car was intercepted after a chase by police in the northern area of Burari on Thursday. The victim was abducted and raped at a flat, district police chief Sindhu Pillai said.

"She is undergoing medical examinations. The men have been arrested and have been booked for gang rape and abduction," Pillai said.

The woman is from the eastern state of West Bengal and knew one of the suspects, Pillai said.

Local media reports said after being sexually abused in the flat, the woman was assaulted again in the moving car but Pillai refused to confirm this, saying the matter was being investigated.

Many rapes have been reported since December's fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus in New Delhi. The assault sparked angry protests and demands for better safety for women and stricter laws against rape.

This week, a man reportedly shoved a iron rod into the mouth of a young girl when she resisted his attempt to rape her. In another case, a Chinese national was allegedly raped in the capital.
