New Delhi, Feb 18 (IANS) A 23-year-old married woman was allegedly gang-raped by four people here last week, said police Monday. All the four accused have been arrested.

The incident was reported from west Delhi's Shahabad Dairy around 6.45 p.m. Feb 11.

All the accused - including Pawan, Bhil, Praveen and an unidentified person - were arrested from Haryana's Sonepat as they had left the city after sexually attacking the woman.

The victim, living in Delhi's Ranjit Nagar, had gone to collect some money from Pawan, who was known to her, in the Shahabad Dairy area where he had called her.

"Pawan was present in a car with Praveen, Bhil and another man when the victim went to meet him. They took her to an isolated place where she was gang raped," said a police officer.

"The accused men dumped the woman in the same area after committing the crime and fled after threatening her with dire consequences if she reported the crime. She then called her husband and police," added the officer.
