In a yet another shocking incident of crime against woman in the capital, a 20-year-old was allegedly gang-raped by her husband and two other men inside a moving vehicle before being dumped in a secluded area.

The incident came to light on Wednesday evening when a passerby spotted the victim in an unconscious state in Southwest Delhi's Najafgarh area. The passerby immediately called the police and rushed the victim to a nearby hospital.

According to the victim, she was gang-raped by Inderjeet (claimed to be her husband), Nitin and Vijendra in a Maruti Alto car. The three accused, who are in the age group of 21 and 25, have been arrested.

The medical examination of the woman also confirmed that she was raped.   

According to The Times of India, Nitin and Vijendra are Inderjeet's relatives. Inderjeet is a businessman and the other two accused are property dealers.

The victim, a resident of Jhajjar district in Haryana, told police that she had married Inderjeet in a local temple without her parents' knowledge. Inderjeet reportedly called her to Delhi to register their marriage. When she came to Delhi she was taken to a car in which Nitin and Vijender were already present.

The woman also said that she consumed cold-drinks laced with sedatives after which the trio gang-raped her.

"But on the way, she was offered a cold drink laced with sedatives and gang-raped by the three accused in an Alto. She was later thrown out of the car,'' an officer told TOI.

Police on Thursday registered a rape case under IPC 376 (G).  

This is not the first time the victim accused Inderjeet of raping her. Earlier in February, the woman filed an FIR against him claiming that he raped her. Police are now investigating the previous case.
