Two Delhi-based women were allegedly gangraped and assaulted by five men, who posed as officers of the anti-narcotic cell of police, at a flat in Anjuna beach village in North Goa, police said on Wednesday.

The women, aged 22 and 30, were holidaying in Goa and had hired a taxi to go to Anjuna beach when the accused stopped them midway in Arpora village posing as anti-narcotic cell officers.

"The accused posed as policemen and waylaid a taxi in which the two women were travelling to Anjuna on Monday night," Superintendent of Police Umesh Gaonkar told PTI on Wednesday.

They frisked the women's bags and then took them to the flat where they allegedly raped and beat them.

 

All the five accused were arrested on Wednesday from the flat, in the presence of victims, after the taxi driver complained to the police.

They were attached to a controversial nightclub at Calangute village which was recently demolished by local people for allegedly being a prostitution den.

The accused were identified as Travor Joseph, Jeevan Pawar, Kamlesh Chowdhary, Ajay Kumar Khushwa and Nadim Sayyed.
