In less than a week, another foreign national alleges rape in Gurugram
Gurugram: In less than a week, one more foreign national has alleged that she was raped in Gurugram. This time the complaint has been filed by a Libyan woman who works as a medical practitioner. The complainant has levelled allegations against her male counterpart. The case has been registered at the New Colony police station. As of now, no arrests have been made in the case.
The Libyan who had done her medical course from Libya was in India for a few months as a medical intern. The accused as per the sources was her supervisor. "We have registered the case under the following sections and have begun our investigations. As of now we have not made any arrests but soon we will make headway in the case," said a police official from Gurugram police.
On June 14, a Spanish woman working as an intern in an information technology company here has approached the police, reporting rape by an acquaintance. The 36-year-old accused allegedly invited her to a party and raped her on Friday night. The accused was arrested by the police. The victim, in her complaint, reported that she was looking for a room and met the accused on a social media group, after which he offered to help.
In another blow to the security of the women in the city, a working professional had alleged that a man flashed in front of her at HUDA city centre metro station on Friday. Apparently, HUDA city centre station is the busiest metro station in Gurugram.
As per the police records, in 2018 there were 123 cases of rapes and 295 incidents of molestation have been reported officially. All these figures are way above than the data recorded in previous years. Moreover, molesters have now taken to the digital medium to harass women in the city. Lack of infrastructure like the development of proper helpline has also increased the troubles for the victims.
