New Delhi: In yet another shocking incident of violence against women in national capital, a 20-year-old woman was raped in a moving car allegedly by her husband and his two relatives here, police said on Thursday.

All attackers have been arrested. The incident came to light on Thursday evening when the victim was found in an unconscious state in Najafgarh by a passerby.

Police took the victim, who had left her home to get her marriage registered without her parents' knowledge, to a hospital where a medical examination confirmed the sexual assault. The woman, a resident of Haryana's Jhajjar district got married to Inderjeet in a temple without informing their families.

The victim claimed she was served cold-drinks laced with sedatives allegedly by Inderjeet and his relatives Nitin and Vijender -- all in their early 20s -- then allegedly raped her.

Inderjeet allegedly asked her to come to Delhi from her house in Jhajjar in Haryana to get their marriage registered. When she met him, she was taken to a car.

"She told us that after she became unconscious, they allegedly raped her," a senior police official said.

A case was registered on Thursday based on the woman's statement and her attackers were arrested from their hideouts in west Delhi's Bakkarwala village.

The increase in number of rape cases has raised concern over the safety of women in the national capital.
