Delhi Police Intensifies Hunt for 2 Other Rape Accused

Delhi Police personnel today fanned out in the capital and neighbouring states to nab two absconding youths allegedly involved in the gangrape of a Mizo call-centre employee while the two others arrested will undergo test identification parade on Saturday.

Several teams are searching for Kamru alias 'Mobile' and Iqbal alias 'Bada Billi' who have evaded arrest in the Dhaula Kuan rape case despite the arrest of two of their accomplices Shamshad and Usman.

All are 25 years of age and members of the "Mobile gang" with Kamru being the kingpin, police said.

A senior police official said the searches were on in many places in the NCR and neighbouring states.

Meanwhile, a Faridabad court today granted the city police custody of Shahid (25) alias 'Chotta Billi', who was allegedly driving the vehicle on November 24 when the gang allegedly and raped the 30-year-old woman working in a Gurgaon BPO.

Feeling the heat, Shahid had surrendered before a Faridabad court in a cow-slaughter case on November 26. "He is likely to be brought to the capital soon," the official said.

Police cracked the case yesterday morning after a raid by police in Haryana's Mewat and arrested two youths -- Shamshad (25) and Usman (25).

Meanwhile, a Delhi court today sent Shamshad and Usman to Tihar Jail on a plea by police that the duo first needed to be identified by the victim. Accordingly, they need to be kept in judicial custody at Tihar Jail till their identification.

Police told the court that the accused are to undergo Test Identification Parade by the victim on Saturday and to rule out the chances of any allegation that the accused were shown to the victim by the police prior to their identification by her, they need to be kept in judicial custody.

The court also allowed the plea of Delhi Police to produce Shahid before it on Monday.

Delhi Police Commissioner B K Gupta met the police teams which were involved in the investigations of the case at Vasant Kunj police station here this evening and congratulated them for cracking the case.

Two Head Constables and two Constables will be rewarded with out-of-turn promotions, a senior police official said.
