One of them was drunk, and he grabbed and groped her, she said in her hand-written complaint to the police. The victim said she raised an alarm and the hotel security men came to her rescue immediately. The incident was captured by the hotel’s CCTV camera.The police said that the accused Vinay Gupta was arrested under IPC section 354A for making physical contact and advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures. Sources said the victim is frightened and in an utter state of shock. “I was in complete shock and started shaking and crying out of fear. I never imagined that something like this would happen. I am living in India and despite what we hear, something like this never happened to me before,” she wrote in her complaint. Sources said that the accused is out on bail and the victim’s employer will approach the court for stringent action in the matter.”A case has been registered in the Anand Vihar Police station and the accused was arrested from the place of incident. He was found in an inebriated state. We are investigating the matter,” Bhairon Singh Gurjar, DCP, East told Mail Today. “The man didn’t apologise or show remorse. His friends tried to justify what happened saying he didn’t do it on purpose, but the man was laughing. This culprit should be punished,” the woman said in her complaint.

After so many incidents of rape, Delhi has earned a bad name. Such incidents are a blot on the city and the country. Despite the government’s social awareness campaign Atithi Devo Bhavah, people are not sensitised,” said a source, who was an eyewitness to the incident.Delhi has earned the dubious label of being the rape capital of the country. Last month, a woman from Uzbekistan was molested by a man who also tried to rob her.
