REWA: A 35-year-old woman was allegedly raped by five persons, four of whom have been taken into custody, in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district, an official said on Tuesday.

The incident took place on September 30, when the victim had stepped out of her house for some work and was allegedly raped by the accused, Rewa's additional superintendent of police (ASP) Shiv Kumar Verma said.
