Mumbai, Aug. 28 : The five accused arrested in connection with the gangrape of a photojournalist were today taken to Shakti Mills compound to reconstruct the sequence of events that led to the heinous crime.

Joint Commissioner of Police Himanshu Roy, who along with his team inspected the spot, said that recreating the crime scene would help them in the probe.

"Today, we have recreated the scene of crime. The accused have been brought here and they have demonstrated before us the manner in which the crime was committed. This is an important part of the investigation and it has brought clarity about the manner in which the crime was committed and the sequence of events," said Roy.

"We are doing everything that needs to be done to build a waterproof case against these heinous criminals and make sure that they are brought to justice so that the women of this great city feel safe and secure and such people are not allowed to roam free to commit such crimes," he added.
