The Delhi police on Thursday arrested two persons for their alleged involvement in the abduction and rape of a 30-year-old call centre employee in Delhi last week.

The two, identified as Shamshad and Usman, have a criminal background and were allegedly involved in a gang-rape case earlier also.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (south) H G S Dhaliwal said, "Two persons have been arrested. We have learnt that another person has surrendered in a Haryana court. We are looking for the other two accused".

"These people have criminal backgrounds. They were involved in gang-rape case earlier," he said. Shamshad and Usman, who are in their early 20s, were picked up for questioning from Haryana's Mewat district late on Wednesday night.

The incident took place on November 26 when the Mizo woman was walking towards her home in Moti village near Dhaula in south Delhi early last Wednesday morning, along with one of her colleagues, when the men in a vehicle abducted her and took turns to rape her.

She was later dumped in Mongolpuri in a semi-conscious state.
