The incident took place on Thursday night on the outskirts of the city and one of the accused, Anil Vasant Thombre (22), has been arrested in this connection, police said.

"In the evening on November 2, Thombre went to the woman's house in Santoshi Mata Nagar here and asked her to accompany him for his birthday celebrations. On their way, three of Thombre's friends, who were carrying food and liquor bottles, joined them," Satyajit Taitwale, Assistant Police Inspector (API) of MIDC Cidco police station, said.
