RO­HTAK: The 26-year-old West Ben­gal woman who was found dead with bul­let in­juries in a Ro­htak canal was killed for re­sist­ing gan­grape bid by four men, po­lice said on Satur­day, re­veal­ing more gory de­tails about the grue­some in­ci­dent that oc­curred on Septem­ber 7.

The po­lice ar­rested two out of the four rapists on Satur­day and took them on re­mand for four days from a lo­cal court. The two were iden­ti­fied as Amit and Ajeet, both res­i­dents of Jind.

The po­lice said Amit and Ajeet, along with their friends Meeta and Ro­hit, con­sumed al­co­hol in Jind on Septem­ber 7. They then went to Go­hana and con­tacted Jaiveer, who ran a pros­ti­tu­tion racket at his house and had taken the victim and her friend hostage.

The four men raped the victim and her friend at Jaiveer’s house. They then “bought” the victim for Rs 5,000 from Jaiveer and took her to their room in Jind, where they gan­graped her mul­ti­ple times again. Later in the day, Meeta had a quar­rel with the victim and asked his friends to take her back to Go­hana and bring a new girl in­stead, the po­lice said.

“While Amit and Ajeet were tak­ing the victim back to Go­hana, Meeta and Ro­hit came back and changed their mind. They de­cided to rape the victim again at a se­cluded place near the canal, but when she re­sisted, they shot her dead and threw her body in the canal,” in­spec­tor Ra­jbeer Singh, said.

Ear­lier, the victim’s friend, who had man­aged to flee the cus­tody of Jaiveer had reached out to cops with de­tails of her or­deal.

The po­lice con­ducted a raid in Go­hana and busted a pros­ti­tu­tion racket be­ing run by Jaiveer and two other women. The po­lice said at­tempts were on to nab Meeta and Ro­hit.
