Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - News -

HISAR:Haryana po­lice launched a hunt for three men, among them an army per­son­nel, for the al­leged rape of 20-year-old woman last week, of­fi­cials said on Satur­day.

Haryana di­rec­tor gen­eral of po­lice (DGP) BS Sandhu said a po­lice team had been sent to Ra­jasthan, where the army man be­lieved to be the main ac­cused is posted. “The other two ac­cused will also be ar­rested soon,” he said. The DGP said se­nior of­fi­cials will also in­ves­ti­gate if there was any neg­li­gence on part of the po­lice in re­spond­ing to the case. The po­lice also re­leased pho­to­graphs and names of the three ac­cused —Pankaj, Man­ish and Nishu.

In her com­plaint, the woman said Pankaj and Man­ish drugged her and took her near a well in a car where she recog­nised Nishu af­ter gain­ing con­scious­ness. She was al­legedly drugged again and gan­graped. “Med­i­cal re­ports con­firm rape but how many com­mit­ted the crime is a mat­ter of in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Sam­ples have been sent to the foren­sic lab,” said Nuh po­lice su­per­in­ten­dent Nazneen Bhasin, who is lead­ing a spe­cial probe team.
