Three charged with gangrape of 21-yr-old Dehradun woman in Chandigarh


Chandigarh, April 24: Five months after a 21-year-old woman was allegedly gangraped in a jungle in Sector 53, a local court charged three men with gangrape and criminal intimidation on Monday.

The court of additional district and sessions judge Poonam R Joshi framed charges under Section 376D (gangrape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the accused, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Garib and Popu alias Kismat Ali.

The trial will begin on May 4.

Police chargesheet came in Feb

The Chandigarh Police had submitted the chargesheet against the three accused in February, just a day before completion of 90 days since the FIR was registered, failure of which would have entitled the trio to get default bail.

The chargesheet comprising 372 pages includes 25 witnesses, with the victim being the prime witness. The police had included the medical report of the victim as part of the evidence. Even the owner of a petrol pump where Irfan had stopped to refuel his auto-rickshaw was made a witness in the case.

While initially police had claimed that Irfan was involved in other rape cases too, nothing of this sort was mentioned in the challan.
