A trader was held captive and his wife allegedly raped by two youths during
an armed robbery in Kotwali area, a senior police officer said here today.
The trader, a grocery shop owner, was closing for the day when the two
motorcycle-borne youths approached him last night and asked for a soft drink,
Additional Superintendent of Police Maan Singh said.
When the trader went inside his house to fulfil the request, the accused
overpowered him and locked him inside a room.
They raped his wife before fleeing with jewellery, Rs 25,000 cash and mobile
phones, the ASP said.
