The incident occurred on Friday afternoon in an area located under the Unav police station limits, and the police have so far detained three out of four accused, they said.

A complaint was lodged by the woman’s younger sister.

“The complainant said she and her elder sister were abducted by four persons. The accused took them to a house, where they raped her elder sister,” Superintendent of Police (SP) Pradeep Sharma said.
