New Delhi, Dec 10 (PTI) A Delhi court today sent the five accused in the sensational Dhaula Kuan gangrape case to 14-days judicial custody after the police submitted that their custodial interrogation was no more required.

Accepting to the submission of the prosecution,Metropolitan Magistrate Sushant Changotra said, "The five accused are sent to judicial custody till December 24."

The prosecution submitted that they have recovered a country-made pistol, allegedly used by the accused to threaten the victim, and the clothes worn by the accused persons during the commission of the offence after conducting a raid at Dhaujj village of Mewat region in Haryana yesterday.

However, the mattress, which the accused used while gangraping the victim in the moving vehicle, has not been recovered yet, the prosecutor said.

Police produced two of the accused Usman and Shamsad, a day before the expiry of their police remand as the court had earlier remanded them to police custody till December 11.

The court, in a lighter note, asked the prosecution that why they have produced the duo a day before the expiry of their custodial interrogation.

The other accused--Iqbal, Shahid and Kamruddin, who were also undergoing questioning by police, were remanded in judicial custody along with the other two.

The prosecution said since police have recovered the clothes and the country-made pistol, they do not require custodial interrogation of the accused at this point in time.

 The rape took place in the early hours of November 24 when the Mizo woman, working in a BPO, was abducted while she was on her way back home.

She was walking towards her residence in Moti village near Dhaula Kuan in South Delhi along with one of her colleagues when the accused kidnapped her, put her in their vehicle and sped off. They later dumped her near Mongolpuri in West Delhi. PTI
