US woman rape case: Delhi Police registers FIR

New Delhi: Delhi Police today registered an FIR based on a complaint filed by an NGO alleging that an American tourist was raped by five men at a five-star hotel in Connaught Place in March.

The complaint was filed through an email. It alleged that five men had entered the woman’s room on the pretext of some tour and travel-related work and raped her.

The victim did not approach police as she was scared and returned to the US. The accused also threatened her of dire consequences if she told anybody about it, the complaint said.

“An FIR was today registered in connection with the incident,” Delhi Police spokesperson and Joint Commissioner of Police (South West) Dependra Pathak said.
