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.
