According to the police, the incident took place near the hutments of Kanhai village on Friday evening when the woman, who works as a domestic help in Sector 45, was returning home after buying groceries from a general store.

The woman, in her complaint, alleged that a group of villagers often passed lewd comments when she passed the stretch and one of them tried to get hold of her, police said.
