New Delhi: Accusing the Delhi Police for not taking his client's case seriously, the advocate of the 25-year-old American gangrape victim said he and his client were not happy with the investigation.

Advocate Mritunjay told IANS that they had been visiting the Connaught Place police station almost daily, but police didn't cooperate with them.

"We helped police whenever they approached us, but no appropriate action has been taken against the five accused persons.

"They (the accused persons) are moving freely. Even we are not aware when the police will arrest them," he added.

Meanwhile, the victim was not happy with the way Delhi Police was handling the case, he said.

The incident took place inside a five star hotel in New Delhi. The FIR was registered on December 3.

While talking to CNN News 18, the victim said that she was threatened by the accused. The victim alleged she was threatened by the accused that she will be taught a lesson for coming to India alone.

Terming rape a serious problem in India and that she will not travel alone in the country again, the woman said she felt that "there should be a stronger law for protecting tourists from rape in India".

The victim had named her tour guide and two hotel staffers among the five who gang-raped her in the hotel she was staying at.

The FIR was registered on December 3. The woman came on Tuesday to get her statement recorded under 164 CrPc and also to participate in the probe.
