“The three culprits came in a car, stopped near me. I told them I had to go to Dwarka Mod, and they aggreed.

“They told me that they too are going towards Dwarka Mod. When I asked the driver about the other two persons in the car, he said they will get down at IFFCO Chowk. So I boarded the cab. They, however, instead of heading for Delhi, took the cab on the expressway. When I asked where they were taking me, they threatened and molested me. One of the accused told me that they were in the Patoda village in Jhajjar district and took the car to the field and raped me. They then dumped me on the road and sped away,” she said.
