A 20-year-old woman, who is also a student at the University of Delhi, was allegedly raped by a friend at a hotel in central Delhi’s Paharganj area, where they were celebrating the birthday party of the accused with two other friends, on Wednesday night.

According to police, the accused has been identified as Pradip (23) from Ludhiana. He had come to Delhi around one month ago and was staying with his cousin, Sunny, looking for a job. On Wednesday night, Sunny had organised Pradip’s birthday party at a hotel, named Sweet Dreams, in Paharganj. He had invited his girlfriend and one of her close female friends (the victim) in the party, for which a suite was booked.

‘It was around 4 pm on Thursday, the matter was reported to the police by the victim and she was sent for a medical examination, which confirmed rape.’ said the official.

The victim also alleged that the accused, along with their common friends, forced her to drink alcohol to take advantage of the situation, said a police official.

The victim told police that when she woke up on Thursday morning, she realised that the accused had allegedly taken advantage of her.

‘However, after investigating the matter, we haven’t found sufficient evidence to charge the other two people present in the party,’ said Alok Kumar, additional commissioner of police (Central).
