A woman was hit and dragged by a car for 12 kilometres in the Sultanpuri area of Delhi early Sunday morning. The victim, who was travelling on a two-wheeler, died at the scene, the ANI news agency reported.

After being hit by a car, her body became entangled in the wheel and was dragged to the side. According to the report, all five occupants of the car were arrested.

“A call was received from PCR [police control room] at around 3.24 am. at the Kanjhawala police station in Rohini district,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer Delhi) Harendra Singh told reporters, according to The Indian Express. “The caller said that a body had been tied to a gray Baleno car and was being dragged. The person he called was able to give part of the registration number ”.

Singh added that police identified the five men by tracking the car. Police also found a scooter that the woman was riding when she encountered the accident.

“During the investigation, the accused said that her car had an accident with the victim’s scooter, but they did not know that she was dragged along with her car for several kilometres,” Singh told ANI. He also said that the police would take action against those who spread misinformation that the woman had been sexually assaulted.

The arrested men have been identified as Deepak Khanna (26), Amit Khanna (25), Krishan (27), Mithun (26) and Manoj Mittal (27), The Indian Express reported.

The head of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), Swati Maliwal, also became aware of the matter and sent a notice to the Delhi Police. “A girl’s naked body was found in Kanjhawala of Delhi, it is said that intoxicated boys hit her scooter with a car and dragged her for several kilometres. This matter is very dangerous, I am issuing Summons to the Delhi Police. The whole truth should come out,” she said in a tweet.

Speaking to the ANI, she also alleged that the five men in the vehicle were drunk. “A very disturbing incident has arisen. A girl was hit by a car and then dragged along the road. The car was driven by five people who were intoxicated. I called the Delhi police to ask how justice will be served for the girl. Secondly, I want to ask, despite the fact that the girl was dragged for kilometres, no checkpoint could catch anything. Nobody stopped those drunks. This is a very scary and shocking incident,” she said.
