Mid Day - - Nation -

NEW DELHI: A 17-year-old girl was al­legedly poi­soned, as­saulted and threat­ened by two mo­tor­cy­cle-borne men in Dwarka dis­trict’s Hast­sal area here after she re­fused to with­draw a rape case she had filed against a 20-year-old man last year, said po­lice. The al­leged at­tack took place on Thurs­day evening when the girl was re­turn­ing home from tu­ition.

In her com­plaint, the mi­nor vic­tim al­leged that two bike­borne men in­ter­cepted her way and threat­ened to kill her if she gave a state­ment against the rape ac­cused. How­ever, when she de­nied do­ing so, they al­legedly caught hold of her and forced her to drink poi­son, a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said.

“The at­tack­ers fled the spot when the girl raised an alarm and some peo­ple rushed to her aid. Mean­while, when the girl started feel­ing dizzy, she boarded a rick­shaw and got her­self ad­mit­ted to a hos­pi­tal,” the cop added.
