Three persons allegedly raped a woman after throwing her nine-month-old daughter off an auto-rickshaw leading to the child's death in Gurgaon, police sources said on Monday.

According to the 23-year-old woman, she was going to her parents’ house in Khandsa village around midnight on 29 May with her daughter after an argument with her husband.

She took a lift in an auto-rickshaw in which three persons were already sitting. She told police that the accused started molesting her as soon as she sat in the vehicle.

As she resisted and her daughter started crying, they threw the infant out of the vehicle.

The child succumbed to injuries, a Gurgaon police official said.

The victim told police that she was raped by the accused inside the auto-rickshaw on the old Khandsa road, close to the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway.

The official said that the woman, a resident of a village near IMT Manesar, had initially told police that the accused had thrown her child out of the autorickshaw. However, later she told them that she was raped also by the three.

A case of murder and sexual assault has been registered. We are investigating the matter as the woman alleging gangrape has refused to undergo medical examination.

Notably, the latest incident comes close on the heels of another incident in which two women were allegedly raped at Yamunanagar and Ambala in Haryana, police said.

Two horrific incidents of rape also shook Haryana last month.

While the body of a 23-year-old woman, who had been gangraped and murdered, was found on the outskirts of Rohtak, a 26-year-old was gangraped in a moving car in Gurgaon and abandoned in a semi-conscious state near her house.
