The incident took place five days ago when the 20-year-old woman had come to Khajuri Khas in north-east Delhi for a show, which turned out to be a trap laid for her by the trio, they said. 

The woman had arrived at Kashmere Gate ISBT on a bus from Haryana from where the accused had picked her up in a car on the pretext of taking her to the event venue, police said. 

"They instead took the woman to a house near an isolated field in Bawana where the incident took place," a senior police officer said. 

They had then dumped her near Khajuri Chowk and also taken away her cellphone, he said.
