A domestic help near east Delhi was gang raped by nine persons and repeatedly raped by her employer (a property dealer) since last October. The 28-year-old woman was allegedly also raped by a friend of a doctor while she was taken to the Lok Nayak Hospital for injuries caused by the first rape.
According to the Shahdara police, the rape survivor got a job at the property dealer’s home with the help of her neighbour, Geeta Sethi, after her husband was left unemployed due to sealing drive.
When the woman started working, the employer raped her and recorded a video too. He used the video to blackmail the woman help and raped her repeatedly.

Over the next few months, the woman was gang raped multiple times by nine other persons. She said that she was being blackmailed with the rape videos and was threatened that if she told the police about it, she and her daughter would be killed.
In her complaint to the police the victim also alleged that her neighbor 42-year-old Geeta Sethi facilitated the sexual assault on her. She alleged that when she was injured in the sexual assault, Sethi took her to the Lok Nayak Hospital where she was introduced to the friend of a doctor whom Sethi knew. The doctor’s friend took her inside and raped her too.
Meanwhile, the police said, “The rape suspect who raped her in hospital is yet to be identified. The Lok Nayak Hospital officials also denied any such incident happened inside the premises, as they have investigated and found no such case.”
The police added, “We have registered a case of gang rape under the IPC and under the sections of the Immoral Human Trafficking Act. The property dealer and the woman neighbour have been arrested after the rape survivor approached the Geeta Colony police station.”
The rape survivor in her statement to the police also identified some of the suspects and provided some of their phone numbers, the police said.
