Haryana Police on Sunday arrested one of the three accused in the gang rape case of the 19-year-old in Rewari.
The accused has been identified as Nishu, and was involved in planning and organising the whole incident, police said.
Nishu had called Deen Dayal asking for a room and was the one who called the medical practitioner, Dr Sanjeev.
Both Sanjeev and Deen Dayal were arrested by the police earlier on Sunday.
This is the third arrest in the case.
Two more accused are still absconding.
Deen Dayal was the owner of the area where the incident happened and Dr Sanjeev was the medical practitioner who first attended to the victim.
Haryana DGP BS Sandhu had confirmed that the two arrested have relevealed valuable information and the police is acting on it.
“They have given a lot of information. We are working on that and the main accused will be arrested very soon,” Sandhu had said.
Sandhu had briefed Cheif Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the investigation done and action taken by the police.
Rewari SP Rajesh Duggal has been transferred due to inaction by the local police and will be replaced by the SP of chief minister’s security, Rahul Sharma.
The victim’s family had alleged that police had failed to take prompt action on their complaint and delayed action by citing jurisdiction issue between police units of Rewari and Mahendergarh districts.
The woman hailing from Rewari was abducted at a bus stop in Kanina town in neighbouring Mahendragarh district on Wednesday while she was on the way to a coaching class, police said.
She was then allegedly drugged and gang-raped at a secluded spot.
The woman was recovered from a room housing a tubewell for irrigation.
