New Delhi: In a shameful act, a 24-year-old woman from the northeast was allegedly raped by a man near Delhi’s Hauz Khas village today.

According to a senior police officer, the incident happened last night when a Manipur woman was returning from a party in Hauz Khas village along with her friends and cousins.

The woman in her complaint lodged with the police said, that around 11.30 PM she was offered a drop home by an unknown person.
