NEW DELHI -- A 21-year-old JNU student was allegedly raped by two persons in south Delhi's Green Park area, police said today.

The victim, an undergraduate student at JNU, had gone to a pub in Hauz Khas village last week with her friend where she met one Salim, they said.

Salim invited them to his house in Green Park for a party, a police officer said.

"When she went to Salim's house along with her friend, Salim's three friends -- Sulaiman, Siddhant and Pratyusha -- were present at his house. While her friend was dropped off at JNU, the girl came back to Salim's house and they consumed alcohol," the officer said.

When she woke up in the morning, she saw Sulaiman forcing himself on her. She realised that Salim and Sulaiman had sexually assaulted her when she was unconscious," he said.

The survivor went back to her hostel in JNU and narrated the incident to her two friends, who immediately took her to the police station.

She was taken to a nearby hospital for medical examination.

On the basis of the survivor's complaint, an FIR under section 376 (punishment for rape) read with 34 (Acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC was lodged at the Safdarjung Enclave police station.

The accused, Salim and Sulaiman, have been arrested and sent to judicial custody by a court, said the officer.

According to reports by the IANS, the two accused are Afghan nationals. Twaab Ahmed, 27, an event manager and his associate, Suliman Ahmadi, 31 have been living in Delhi on United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees card.
