New Delhi, January 1
A married woman, aged about 23 years, was allegedly picked up from the market area in Narela and gang-raped by two unknown persons in a moving car. This was the fourth such incident during last six months.

The incident took place yesterday afternoon when the victim went to the local market to purchase daily goods. As she reached the lonely place near the market place, some unidentified persons picked her up.

The victim lodged a complaint against the two accused at the Narela police station. A case was registered against the two, who were absconding, and a probe was on, the police said.

The victim was a resident of Sector 10, Narela. She was taken for medical examination this afternoon.

In another case, the police ruled out sexual assault in the case that took place in Punjabi Bagh, where two women were found lying in an injured condition near the Ring Road.

The two aged 55 and 35 were residents of a slum cluster in Moti Nagar and were beaten up by an inebriated neighbour following a dispute, a police spokesman said, adding that a case had been registered.

Two women were found in an injured condition at a West Delhi locality this morning.

The duo, identified as Arti (55) and Saroj (30), were found near the Punjabi Bagh flyover along the Ring Road with bruises on their hands and faces, police sources said. The women were admitted to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, where doctors ruled out any case of sexual assault.

The two were injured following a domestic scuffle Arti had with her son and his friend who had come home for a New Year party last night, the police said. The matter came to fisticuffs, in which the two women were injured.

The women came out of the house in a huff and were spotted by passersby, who informed the police, the sources said.
