The incident happened on February 5. The four, reportedly accompanied by a woman, came to her house when her parents were out.

The woman said they needed a beautician. Since she knew the men, she was unsuspecting and went with them.

The men then raped her in the moving car. After being dumped, she took a three-wheeler to her friend's house in Basti Jodhewal.

Police now examining CCTV footage

Two days later, she told her parents, who then lodged a complaint. Police are now scanning CCTV footage of the area. The accused have been booked for gangrape, criminal conspiracy and others. Meanwhile, the woman has been identified as one of the men's wife.
