Last updated on: January 02, 2013 15:23 IST

Five persons, including a defence ministry staff and a constable of the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, were arrested for allegedly molesting a woman and trying to forcibly take her in their car on Sunday, police said on Wednesday.

All the five persons involved in the case were arrested after a complaint filed by Roshni Devi, who alleged that her daughter-in-law was molested by the group at her hut in Bawana in northwest Delhi.

The five persons have been identified as Mahender (26), Sunil Dahiya (25), Rajneesh (28), Gopal (28) and Basant (31).

While Gopal is a multi-task staff in the Defence Ministry, Basant is a head constable in DRI.

Devi alleged that on Sunday the five men came in a car and entered their hut when she along with her daughter-in-law was busy cooking dinner.

"They molested Reena and tried to abduct her at which Roshni Devi resisted and shouted. People gathered and overpowered them. All the five men have been arrested," a senior police official said, quoting the complainant.
