Two prime accused in the Rewari gangrape case, who had been absconding since the incident came to light, were on Sunday arrested by the police in Haryana. The Haryana Police special investigation team (SIT), which is probing the case, had last week assured that all efforts were on to nab the two absconding accused, Pankaj and Manish.
The police had arrested one of the three accused on Sunday last. Confirming his arrest, Superintendent of Police Naazneen Bhatt, who is heading the SIT, had told news agency ANI that the crime scene had been sealed and many other aspects were being investigated.
The SIT chief had said that raids were on to nab two other accused, of which one is a soldier. The three had gang-raped the young woman on September 12. Two other men - Deendayal, the owner of a tubewell room where the crime took place in Mahendragarh district and Sanjeev Kumar, a medical practitioner who had treated the victim - were arrested by the SIT in connection with the case. Both were booked as they did not inform police despite knowing about the crime.
