The prime accused has been identified as Dilip Verma. Three teams have been formed who are working on different leads and raiding places to arrest the culprits. Delhi police received a call at 9.15pm from a passerby.

The woman is a native of Jaipur, police said. She had come to Vrindavan (UP) on December 22 and was returning home on Wednesday. On December 26, she went to Goverdhan area there where she met Verma.

The accused Dilip Verma reportedly befriended the victim. Police said she boarded a cab from Vrindavan to come to Delhi in the evening and Verma was accompanying her.

As per victim's statement, police said, that Verma's two other friends joined them on the way. The woman was reportedly sexually assaulted by all the three men after gagging and sedating her. They drove the vehicle and took her to an undisclosed place and dumped her in an isolated place in Kalkaji area of south Delhi and fled.
