NEW DELHI - An 18-year-old girl was allegedly abducted and raped in a moving vehicle by four youths, including a minor, after she protested their lewd remarks in Sultanpuri area of northwest Delhi late Saturday. All the accused have been arrested, police said Sunday.

The girl was on her way to pick up her mother, who works in a factory, when the men in a black Hyundai Accent car started passing lewd remarks at her near a bus stop in Sultanpuri.

“She protested and an argument ensued, after which she threw a bunch of keys at the car which damaged the rear window. The men then forced her into the car and allegedly raped her in the moving car,” a police officer said.

A passerby who witnessed the incident alerted the police, after which she was rescued. The medical examination report of the girl is awaited.
