A 20-year-old woman, who works at a spa in Gurgaon, was raped and later dumped in Dwarka's Sector 20 on Wednesday night.

After finishing her shift at the spa, the woman was waiting for a bus to Mahipalpur in Delhi when she was offered a lift by someone right outside her office, police said.

"She finished her work around 8.45pm at her office in Gurgaon and was waiting for a bus. A man offered to drop her at Mahipalpur but instead forcefully took her towards Dwarka," said a senior police officer.

Police said the woman was taken to an isolated place in Dwarka Sector 20 and raped repeatedly. She was later dumped in a forested area in the same sector.

"She remained unconscious for some time and after gaining consciousness she called her friends. They went to Dwarka Sector 23 police station and lodged a complaint," the officer added. No arrest has been made in the case so far. Police said raids have been conducted at various places in Gurgaon.

"We have recovered a debit card from the crime spot which could be of the accused. We have also identified the man and a hunt is on to nab him," the officer added.

According to North East Support Centre and Helpline, the woman is from Churachandpur district in Manipur. She came to Delhi in 2010 in search of a job. Her medical examination confirmed rape.

The incident has once again raised a question mark on Delhi Police's claims regarding safety of women in the Capital.

"Crime against women, particularly from the northeast, is not controlled. We appeal to the Delhi Police Commissioner to take action against police officers responsible for delay in taking action to nab the culprit," said Madhu Chandra, spokesperson of Northeast Support Centre and Helpline.

Delhi Police, however, claimed they were doing their best to make Delhi safe for women.
