NEW DELHI: A Delhi court Tuesday convicted five men for abduction and gang rape of a call centre executive that took place in the Dhaula Kuan area in 2010.
Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhat convicted Shamshad alias Khutkan, Usman alias Kale, Shahid alias Chhota Billi, Iqbal alias Bada Billi and Kamruddin under charges of abduction and gang rape of the 30-year-old call centre executive in the Dhaula Kuan area of south Delhi.
The court fixed Oct 17 for hearing arguments on quantum of sentence.
On Nov 24, 2010, the five men abducted the woman, who hailed from the northeast. She was walking home with a friend after her shift ended, according to police.
The abductors took her to Mangolpuri, gang raped her, and left her on an isolated road there.
The men were later arrested from Mewat in Haryana. They have claimed innocence, saying they were falsely implicated in the case.
They were tried on charges of abduction, criminal intimidation and gang rape.
After the incident, Delhi Police ordered all BPOs in Delhi and the National Capital Region to drop women employees at their homes after their shift ends.
