Mother of two gang raped by 5 men; accused claim they paid her Rs 5000 for having sex
After calling the police and informing them that she was abducted and gang raped by five men, a mother-of-two jumped off a first-floor apartment in east Delhi.

Cops have arrested all the five accused who all are in their twenties and have claimed that they brought the woman home for "paid sex" during a Holi party. 

The accused have been identified as Lakshay Bhalla, Vikas Kumar, Naveen, Swarit and Prateek.

While three of the accused work in a Noida-based BPO, the fourth accused is an engineer employed with a top IT services firm and the fifth accused was allegedly known to the woman.

"Allegedly to save herself after being gang-raped by five men, the 28-year-old divorcee and mother-of-two leapt from the first floor of a rented accommodation in east Delhi's Pandav Nagar on Sunday morning," Mail Today quoted a police officer.

The woman reported the matter to police at around 5.30 am but based on what police said, her story seems to be a made up one.

Mail today quoted a senior police official as saying that the women has, as of now, changed her statement twice and is unable to narrate the exact sequence of events.

"We are investigating the case from all angles and all five accused have been sent to judicial custody," the police official said.

The woman has alleged that on the pretext of dropping her to her residence, one of the suspects picked her up in his car at around 11 pm on Saturday. Allegedly, instead of dropping her at her residence, the accused brought her to a friend's house in Pandav Nagar where five of them raped her, taking turns.

The woman has claimed that she jumped off the balcony to get away. She has also received some injuries while jumping off.

The woman was taken to east Delhi's Lal Bahadur Shastri Hospital and discharged after treatment. A medical examination conducted on her has confirmed rape.

"When cops interrogated all the accused, they claimed they knew the woman was into prostitution. On Saturday night, they called her to their house in Pandav Nagar to have paid sex for 5,000 during a house party. Once the deal was fixed, one of them - who already knew her - went to pick her up. But there was a dispute over money and she jumped off the building and called police," an officer close to the investigation was quoted by Mail Today.

The police are now investigating her call records and trying to gather CCTV footage.
