The incident, the latest to spotlight sexual violence in India, drew widespread condemnation including from the Delhi Commission for Women and Delhi's chief minister, who called it "shameful."
Footage on social media, which could not be independently verified, showed the victim — her face blackened with ink and her hair chopped off — being pushed and heckled by several women as onlookers cheered and filmed with their phones.
R. Sathiyasundaram, deputy commissioner of police, said the incident in the Shahdara district of east Delhi on Wednesday was a result of "previous enmity" among neighbours.
He gave no further details but media reports said a 16-year-old relative of the perpetrators had killed himself by jumping in front of a train after the married 21-year-old woman rejected his advances.
"All 11 arrested including two minors, who can't be tried as adults, belong to a single family and the videos clearly show that the women were at the forefront," Sathiyasundaram told AFP.
The victim told police that she was abducted by members of the family before being raped by several men and minors — egged on by the women — and then beaten with sticks and paraded outside.
"We are examining the videos to identify others who were involved and there will be more arrests," Chinmay Biswal, additional commissioner of Delhi police, told AFP.
The woman, who has a two-year-old child, is now receiving counselling after the incident, which reportedly took place barely 50 metres from a police booth that was unmanned at the time.
India's rape laws were overhauled after a notorious 2012 gang rape in New Delhi but the number of offences remains high, with more than 28,000 rapes reported in 2020.
Many more are thought to go unreported and police have long been accused of not doing enough to prevent violent crime and failing to bring sexual assault cases to court.
Although police on Wednesday night arrested the two accused, but BJP state President Satish Poonia still questioned Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on the "deteriorating" law and order in state.
"There was a lot of people, in my opinion, that should have intervened; somebody should have done something," Bernhardt said. "It speaks to where we are in society; I mean, who would allow something like that to take place? So it’s troubling."
Prime Minister Imran Khan said last year he wanted to introduce the penalty amid a national outcry over increasing offences and the specific case of a mother of two driving along a major highway who was dragged out of her car and raped by two men at gunpoint.
Doctors examining her found that she was nine months pregnant and she delivered a baby girl the same day. The hospital informed police and questioned the girl. She named a 12-year-old boy who lived in the same neighbourhood.
