A group of young riders rescued a girl, who is in her 20s, abducted by three men in a car in New Delhi. Two of the accused were arrested, but the third abductor managed to escape.
These youngsters were eating at a roadside stall at around 9 pm when they heard her desperate cries for help. The bikers immediately alerted the police and started following the car. They were able to stop the car after chasing it for several miles, successfully saving the girl.
The car was later surrounded by a mob that threw stones at it, and before the police officers could stop them, set it on fire. The fire department was then called to extinguish the flames, after which the car was seized as evidence.
While speaking with The Times Of India, one of the bikers, Aman Goyal, said,
The woman was in a state of shock and semi-conscious when we rescued her.
The victim knew one of her abductors, whom she had met while working as a domestic help in Rohini. He approached her when she was returning home, and offered her a lift. She realised that there were two other men only when she had boarded the car.
The abductors began touching her inappropriately after they had travelled some distance. They even tore her clothes and rolled up the windows when she began shouting. According to DNA India, a senior police official said,
After the Hyundai Accent car started going in an unknown direction, the woman got suspicious and asked them to stop, but they did not. Sensing danger, she started shouting, which is when a group of youths, who were having dinner at a dhaba near the Begumpur chowk, heard her.
The search for the third abductor has begun and the woman has been sent to an NGO for counselling. As per DNA India, DCP (Outer) M.N Tiwari said,
We have registered a case of abduction and of trying to disrobe a woman under Section 354B. The men were locals.
