New Delhi: Delhi continued to be an unsafe place for women with a 35-year-old housewife alleging that she was kidnapped on Sunday outside Akshardham temple and then gangraped in a moving car before dumping her before the Pragati Maidan metro station in central Delhi, said police.

The woman alleged that she was abducted from Akshardham at around 9 AM by the gang which took turns to rape her in the moving car, which also had two women.

"All the six persons in the white car were known to the victim.
