The incident took place on Thursday evening when the woman left her office and took a private cab from Shankar Chowk of neighbouring Gurgaon for Hero Honda Chowk.
"While I was waiting for a cab, a taxi stopped near me. I asked the cab driver to drop me at Hero Honda Chowk. I didn't suspect on the intention of two persons already sitting in it as they appeared as passengers," She said.
"Near Jharsa Chowk, the three men, including the driver, started molesting me. When I resisted their attempts and tried to raise alarm, they tied my hands and legs and choked me," the woman who works as an executive said.
"They attempted to rape me," she said.
"In the meantime, two bike-borne police personnel appeared near the spot. After which the trio panicked and sped towards Rajiv Chowk. They then snatched my phone and wallet and threw me out of the moving cab near Rajiv Chowk. They then escaped from the spot," the victim said.
The woman, with the help pf passer-by, somehow managed to call her husband after which they approached a police station.
However, she alleged that the police officers initially refused to file the case of molestation and tried to hush-up the matter saying that they will visit the spot. She also claimed that the officer asked her to show evidence of molestation.
However, Gurgaon Police Chief PRO Manish Sehgal, while reacting to the allegation, said the woman had only filed a complaint related to robbery and there was no mention of rape attempt and molestation.
