"When the the victim approached police the same night, they did not register her complaint because of language problems," said an officer.

Police registered the case Dec 3.

A police officer who was on duty at the police station on the night of the incident was transferred to police lines for dereliction of duty.

"All the four accused were arrested from Timarpur area. The car, which belongs to Deepak, has been impounded," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Sindhu Pillai.
