The Army and the police are expected to meet to discuss the arrest of a woman accused of gang raping two students in a Delhi University campus in the last three days, a senior officer told The Hindu on Saturday.
The two students were in their final year of high school in the evening of August 30 when the woman and two other men, including her husband, forced themselves on them, and raped them, police said.
The man who is the accused in the case has been booked under sections 376 of the IPC, 376 (gang rape), 376A of the Indian Penal Code, and 498A (criminal intimidation), a police officer told the newspaper.
The case was registered on August 30 after the students went to the police station to lodge a complaint.
The victim and the accused have been lodged under police custody.
“Both the accused will be produced before the court today (Saturday),” the officer said.
He did not give details of the case.
“The accused have already been booked for rape.
We are investigating the matter,” he said.
The Army has been asked to file a report within 48 hours.
A senior police officer said that the accused was not in uniform.
He also did not elaborate on the motive behind the assault.
Police officials had earlier said that a case had been registered under 376(g) (gang-rape) and 376A (sexual harassment) of the code.
After the case was reported, a Delhi Police Commissioner and a senior official from the Delhi Police Station were at the college to check the status of the FIRs, said a senior police official.
Senior police officials said that it was not clear what the motive for the attack was, but that the two students had been studying at the school for the last 3-4 months.
