In a report presented in Panama, UN Women and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) found assaults on women persisted in the region despite severe laws aimed at curbing the phenomenon.

Woman raped in car over 6 hours, dumped in Gr Noida

GURGAON: A 35-year-old woman was allegedly abducted from near MG Road Metro station in Gurgaon, gang-raped by three men in a car and dumped at Greater Noida after six hours on Tuesday morning.

A resident of Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, the woman was staying with relatives at a village in Haryana’s Nuh for the past few days. She was looking for a job in Sohna and Gurgaon, and her search took her to MG Road on Monday.

She came to Gurgaon from Sohna around 4pm in an auto rickshaw and around 8.30 pm she was pulled into a sedan, which is probably a cab.

Police said there were three men in the car and they took turns to assault her for six hours, driving through Gurgaon, Faridabad, New Delhi, Noida and Greater Noida.

They threw her out in a dark, secluded spot near Yatharth hospital in Greater Noida before 3am. Police and residents spotted her crying in front of the hospital.

“Some beer bottles were found at the spot, which indicates the accused persons were inebriated at the time,” a senior Greater Noida police officer told PTI.

The woman said in her statement that her assailants forced her to drink alcohol.

The incident underscored the lack of safety for women in the national capital and its surrounding areas, and poor police patrolling at night in Gurgaon and Noida.

India enacted stringent laws against sexual offenders after the fatal gang rape of a paramedical student in New Delhi in a bus in December 2012. But these measures failed to decrease crimes against women.
