Dhaula Kuan gangrape: All 5 accused convicted

October 14, 2014 16:36 IST

A Delhi court on Tuesday convicted all the five accused of abducting and gangraping a 30-year-old BPO executive from the northeast in south Delhi's Dhaula Kuan area in 2010.

They will be sentenced on Friday.

"All accused are found guilty of abducting and gangraping the victim... Come for the order on sentence on October 17," Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhatt said.

The court convicted Usman alias Kale, Shamshad alias Khutkan, Shahid alias Chhota Billi, Iqbal alias Bada Billi and Kamruddin alias Mobile, for the offences of kidnapping (365), gangrape (376 (2g)), criminal intimidation (506) and sharing common intention (34) under the IPC.

The court, however, acquitted Usman of charges under the Arms Act. He was the only accused charged under this section.

According to police, all the convicts had abducted the victim on November 24, 2010 while she was walking home with her friend after her shift had ended. The convicts then took the victim to Mongolpuri, allegedly gangraped her, and left her at an isolated road.

On October 10, the court had fixed the date of pronouncement of verdict for October 14.

The court had reserved the verdict after police denied the alleged discrepancies raised by the counsel for Usman on September 22, claiming that blood sample collected from the victim was planted on his pants to ensure matching of DNA samples.
