New Delhi: A woman was killed in the capital city on New Year's morning after her scooty was hit by a car and got dragged by the same car some 12 kilometres, NDTV reported.

The woman's family alleged that the 20-year-old deceased was sexually assaulted.

The car, a Maruti Suzuki Baleno, was carrying five men, who included a credit card collection agent, a driver and a ration shop owner. Police have arrested all five.

At Delhi's Sultanpuri, just hours into New Year, the car hit the victim, who got tangled with the car's underbody and was dragged up to 10-12 km.

Citing that her body was completely torn off, the deceased's mother alleged that the former was sexually assaulted. She demanded a full investigation into the horrible incident.

News agency Asian News International reported that at 3.24 am, the police control received a call that a car was seen dragging a body. At 4.11 am, another call informed the control room that a woman's body was lying on the road. The deceased is identified as Anjali and a resident of Aman Vihar. She was living with her mother, four sisters and two brothers. Her father had died some years ago.

According to ANI, the Delhi police arrested the accused on the basis of the car's registration. The accused claim that their car met with an accident, but they never realised they were dragging a dead body for several kilometres. The police added that the posts on social media claiming that the case was a rape incident were fake.

Delhi Commission for Women's chief Swati Maliwal said that there were reports that the men in the car were drunk. She said that the matter was very dangerous and she would summon the Delhi Police for more details on the incident.
