New Delhi: Two Delhi University students were allegedly raped by three men after being offered drinks laced with sedatives at a get-together in Bawana area of the outer Delhi.

Two of the accused have been arrested, identified as Vicky and Ajit, while the third one, Sunil, was absconding after the incident on Friday last, a senior police official said on Sunday.

"The victims were students of first year and Vicky and Sunil who live in the same locality, had befriended them. They had invited the girls to their home on the pretext of a get-together," police said.

When the girls arrived, they were surprised to find that there was no one in the house except them. But they were told by the accused that the other guests would be coming soon and offered them soft drinks, which were laced with sedatives.

After the drinks, the girls  felt dizzy and Sunil and Vicky took the victims to Ajit's garage in Kanjhawala area and raped them.

One of their accomplice was keeping guard, the official said, adding they threatened the girls not to reveal the incident to anyone. After sexually assaulting the girls, the accused dropped them home.

But the victims told their parents after reaching their home. The girls were sent for a medical examination and a case was registered.

Police arrested Vicky and Ajit last night but Sunil managed to escape.

"Vicky and Sunil were school dropouts and they don't have previous record," he said, efforts were on to nab the third accused.
