Ghanaian footballers arrested in India on gangrape charges

A young job seeker was allegedly pulled into a sex racket by a New Town woman in India and was forced to sleep with two Ghanaian footballers at a city guest house where she was gang raped by the duo.

The two footballers and the woman were arrested by the police on the basis of the complaint lodged by the woman.

Police said, the young woman in her late twenties was separated from her husband and was living alone at a rented flat in New Town’s Gouranganagar in India. However, being out of job, she had approached her neighbour Lisa Collins for some financial help, who promised to offer her some work.

According to the complaint, on 16 May Collins asked the woman to come with her for a job.

“They reached a guest house in Picnic garden where the two Ghanaian footballers lived and she was forced to spend the night with them. The woman complained the two men had sex with her on multiple occasions throughout the night against her wish and was let go only the next morning,” said a police officer.

Battered and bruised, the woman stayed at her rented accommodation for two days, before she gathered courage and strength to turn up at the New Town police station and lodged a complaint against Collins and the two footballers on Friday.

Acting on her complaint, New Town police first arrested Collins and then took her to the Tiljala address where the two footballers were arrested.

Christopher Nars (28) and Moses Zutah (24) are both resident of Ghana who came to India on student visa and were hired as part time footballers for different clubs across the state in exchange of money.

They have been remanded into police custody. The two suspects could be jailed for life if convicted.
