A 17-year-old girl was gangraped by five men in a car after they drugged her at a party here on the outskirts of Delhi.

The incident occurred on Friday night when the victim, a student of Class X, had gone with the five to a birthday party of one of the accused, police said today, adding her medical examination has confirmed rape.

Four of the accused -- Himanshu Sharma, Rahul Arya, Saurabh and Sunil-- have been arrested while a manhunt has been launched for their fifth accomplice Neeraj, a management student.

"Investigations revealed that the victim was known to accused. On Friday evening, the girl had gone with them for birthday celebration of one of the accused. There she was given a sedative laced drink," said Anant Dev, Superintendent of Police.

"Thereafter, she was taken in car and gangraped by the five accused," he said.

Earlier, the girl had claimed that she was dragged into the vehicle as she was waiting for her father at a bus stop last night and gangraped.
