New Delhi, Oct 14: A Delhi court on Tuesday held all the five persons guilty in the 2010 Dhaula Kuan abduction and gang-rape case. The court would pronounce the sentence on October 17 (Friday).
The court of Additional Sessions Judge, Virender Bhat, had last week deferred the verdict.
According to reports, the five accused, including Shamshad alias Khutkan, Usman alias Kale, Shahid alias Chhota Billi, Iqbal alias Bada Billi and Kamruddin, have been convicted for abduction and gang-rape of a 30-year-old call centre executive in Dhaula Kuan area of south Delhi.
The five men had reportedly abducted the woman, who hailed from the Northeast, on November 24, 2010, while she was walking home with a friend after her shift ended. They took her to Mangolpuri, gang-raped her, and left her on an isolated road there.
The five were later arrested from Mewat in Haryana.
All the five accused had claimed innocence, saying they were falsely implicated in the case, but they were tried on charges of gang-rape, criminal intimidation and abduction.
Delhi Police after the case issued an order that all the BPO companies in Delhi and the National Capital Region should drop women employees home while providing them security.
