The Delhi police have picked up 10 suspects in connection with the rape of a Swiss diplomat in the capital on Tuesday night.
"We are questioning 10 suspects and verifying their movements at the time of the crime," Deputy Commissioner of Police (south district) Vivek Gogia said.

He said their fingerprints were also being matched with those found on a lighter found in the victim's car.

In an effort to help identify the culprits from among the suspects, their photographs have been e-mailed to the victim in Switzerland.
