The 22-year-old woman, from a village in South Dinajpur in West Bengal and now living in South City 1 area of Gurugram, filed a FIR against four unknown men.

She said she went with her husband and relatives to a family function in Tigra village on Sunday evening. When they were returning home in a car, they were stopped by four men in another car.

"We were thrashed, I was dragged to a nearby bush by one of them and raped," the victim said in her complaint.

The accused were arrested on the basis of the registration number of the vehicle provided by the victims.

A woman was allegedly sexually assaulted while her husband and brother-law-in were being held at gun-point at Sector-56 here, following which four persons were arrested, the police said today.

Police said the incident occurred late last night when the 22-year-old woman was returning from a family function along with her husband. According to the woman, while returning in her brother- in-law's car, they stopped near Business Park Tower in sector 56, where her husband stepped out of the vehicle to attend nature's call.

The accused then dragged her out of the car and while three of them held her husband and brother-in-law at gun- point, the fourth one raped her, said Manish Sehgal, ACP and chief PRO of Gurgaon police.
