The matter came to light on Tuesday, when the girl fell ill and was admitted to a government hospital. At the hospital, a medical examination revealed that she was sexually assaulted, police said. The duty constable at the hospital thereafter informed the Anand Vihar police station, deputy commissioner of police (east) Amrutha Guguloth said.

A police officer aware of the case said on condition of anonymity that the girl was with a friend near the Anand Vihar Metro station on the night on January 9 when she was gang raped.
“The person took her to an isolated place near Anand Vihar Park, where his friend was already present. The girl was gang raped, and was assaulted when she tried to resist. They also threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone about the incident. The girl has told the police that she was also sexually assaulted at Mohan Nagar in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad,” the officer said.
