Dewas (MP): A woman was allegedly gangraped by three persons in a moving jeep on the Dewas-Bhopal by-pass here, police said today.

The woman, who was standing at a bus stop to catch a bus to Ujjain late last night, was offered a lift by the trio in their jeep which she accepted, Dewas Superintendent of Police (SP) Gourav Rajput told.

However, instead of going to Ujjain they took the jeep towards the by-pass on the plea that they have to pick up some more persons from the bus stand.

On reaching the by-pass they assaulted the woman, who is married, he said, adding when the jeep crossed a toll booth, the woman screamed for help following which police were alerted.

Police then chased the jeep and took into custody all the three persons, the SP said.

Medical examination of the victim this morning confirmed that she was raped. Related proofs were also found inside the jeep, police said.

The trio - Bunty Patel (21), Sunil Mehra (25) and Rajendra Singh Sendhav (25) - all drivers with a road construction company - were arrested, police added.
