A German tourist, who was allegedly kidnapped and molested last week, has identified two of the five arrested persons in an identification parade in the high security Burial jail in Chandigarh.
The 20-year-old victim identified Pankaj Punia and Harpreet Singh alias Dalli during the parade carried out in jail along with other people on Sunday, police said.
The victim, who was in the city along with Embassy officials and her father, made no mistake in the identification of the two accused in the presence of Sub Divisional Magistrate, they said.
While Punia and Dalli had agreed for identification parade, three others Sukhwinder alias Sukhi, Manveer alias Jolly and Sompal had refused to be a part of it during their court hearing last week.
The police also took her to Ambala to identify the place of incident.
Meanwhile, Chandigarh police has decided to move to the fast track court for speedy trial for the victim.
