A 23-year-old man allegedly raped a woman when he went to deliver groceries at her house at a residential complex in Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida, police said. The incident took place on Friday, October 27.
Sumit Singh, the accused who has been arrested, was assigned for delivery by the grocery-delivery mobile app that the woman used to place her order.
On reaching the destination, Sumit realised that the woman was alone at home, an NDTV report said, adding that he then barged into the house, raped the woman and then fled the scene.
The incident took place on Friday, and the woman registered a police complaint on the same day after which police formed several teams to track the accused, who was finally found at a residential area in Greater Noida.
When a police team reached the spot and approached Sumit, he managed to grab a pistol from one of the constables and ran away, the report said.
More teams were called in to search the area and catch Sumit. He fired at the police teams when they got close to him, following which he was shot in the leg when the police fired back.
umit has been arrested and is currently being treated at a hospital. It has been found that Sumit has been arrested in the past for selling illegal liquor.
