A 35-year-old auto-rickshaw driver was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly raping a woman last week with his friend, police said.
Additional Superintendent of Police (city) Kunwar Gyananjay Singh told reporters on that Bablu had been arrested for raping a 21-year-old woman.
The woman, according to police, had left from her home under the Jarwal Road Police Station area on November 16 and was raped by Bablu and his friend Sonu alias Pachasa.
The two abandoned her outside a hospital on the morning of November 17 after she began bleeding excessively, police said. Singh said initially police were in the dark about how she ended up like that due to her being unconscious.
On the instructions of the Superintendent of Police, six teams were formed to unravel what led to her being dumped in such a state.
Singh said that the police in the last four days examined footage from around 400 CCTVs and identified one of the rapists as Bablu and arrested him. His auto has also been seized. Singh said Bablu is the aide of the main accused Sonu alias Pachasa, who is absconding, and efforts are on to nab him.
