Gurgaon: Two Delhi-based women were gang-raped here by three men in a moving car early Thursday while returning home from a pub, police said.

The two women had hired a car outside the Sahara Mall for Rs.300 to go to Tughlaqabad area in south Delhi. The driver, however, let two other men into the car.

The car was then diverted to the Gurgaon-Faridabad road where the men gang-raped them in the moving car "for some hours", a police officer told IANS.
