Danish woman fails to identify minor accused in rape case

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) A Danish woman, who was allegedly gang raped by nine vagabonds including three minors, failed to identify the juveniles on Thursday.

According to sources, the woman who was allegedly raped last year failed to identify the three minor accused while recording her statement before a Juvenile Justice Board here.

Meanwhile, two police officials from Denmark told a Delhi court, which is hearing the rape case, that the 52-year-old woman was “extremely traumatised” when she reached her native country after the incident.

The statement of the two police officials — Inspector (Investigation) in Copenhagen Police, Rasmus Nielsen and Detective Inspector Britta Almfort — were recorded before Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja, who is holding the trial in the rape case against the six adult accused.

On Thursday, the woman also recorded her statement before the sessions court and identified three adult accused.

Arjun, Raju alias Chhakka, Mohammad Raja, Mahendra alias Ganja, Raju alias Bajji and Shyam Lal have been charged with robbing and raping the woman at knife-point near the New Delhi railway station in January 2014.

The woman was allegedly raped after she sought directions to her hotel in central Delhi’s Paharganj area.

The three minors are facing an inquiry before the Juvenile Justice Board.

Police said all the accused were vagabonds and they took the woman to an isolated spot near the Divisional Railway Officers’ Club near the railway station, took away her belongings and then raped her.
