GANGTOK, Nov 28: Three people have been arrested for
allegedly raping a 22-year-old woman in Sikkim’s Gangtok
district, police said on Tuesday.
Gangtok superintendent of police Tenzing Loden Lepcha said
the incident took place when the woman was returning home
from a pre-graduation party at a local pub in the state capital
on the night of November 25.
She boarded a taxi but instead of dropping her home, the driver
took her to a secluded place in Ranipool area, around 11 km
from Gangtok, where he was joined by two of his associates,
and they took turns to rape the woman, the officer said.
The three accused then left the woman at the spot and fled,
following which she found her way to Ranipool police station
and lodged an FIR, he said.
The woman was immediately sent for medical assistance, and a
case was registered. A manhunt was launched for the accused
and they were arrested on Monday, the SP said.
The trio was booked under sections of the Indian Penal Code
and they were remanded to judicial custody, he added. (PTI)
