New Delhi:

Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar has assured him of taking appropriate action in the Rewari gangrape case. 

"I have spoken to Haryana CM who has assured me of taking appropriate action in the case," Singh on the case.

The home minister is in Jammu to inaugurate two Comprehensive Integrated Border Managment System (CIBMS) pilot projects. 

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) on Sunday arrested three people, including one of the main accused Nishu, in connection with the alleged rape of 20-year-old Haryana CBSE topper. Besides Nishu, two other people who were arrested were the owner of the borewell store-room where the crime was committed and a doctor who had been called to check the victim. However, two other main accused, including the Army man, were still absconding four days after the crime took place.

Addressing a press conference at Rewari, SIT chief Nazneen Bhasin said that within 30 hours of its formation, the SIT team arrested borewell owner Deen Dayal and doctor Sanjeev, while one key accused Nishu was also being brought to Rewari.

While Deen Dayal helped the accused – Army man Pankaj, Manish and Nishu – by providing keys of the storeroom where the student was gang-raped, Dr Sanjeev was called by one of the three accused to check the condition of the victim. But he didn’t inform the police, therefore, arrested.

“Dr Sanjeev’s involvement is proved as it was in his knowledge that the girl was held by three boys and she was not conscious about the things happening. He was part of the plan till the end but didn’t inform any authority, Bhasin said.

On being asked about the serving soldier, the SIT chief said, “He is absconding but he will be arrested soon.”

“With the arrest of the two, the police got some vital clues about the whereabouts of the other accused and they will be arrested soon. We will produce Deen Dayal and Dr Sanjeev in a court on Monday and seek police remand for further investigations,” she added.
