Two youths have been arrested for raping a 13-year-old minor girl here last evening, police said Tuesday, adding that a complaint in this regard was registered today.
Sajan Mir (19) and his accomplice Jignesh Chaudhary (26), both residents of Ambedkarnagar in Rander, had physically abused the 13-year-old girl, a Rander police officer said.
Police said the incident took place after the minor, also a resident of Ambedkarnagar, was seen talking to Sajan Mir outside her tuition class.
When the girl's father saw them talking, both of them ran away due to fear, police said.
Mir called up his friend Jignesh Chaudhary and the trio fled to a slum behind Ambedkarnagar, where Mir first raped her, the police said.
Chaudhary then asked Mir to go home and then he physically abused the minor girl throughout the night, police said.
Meanwhile, the minor girl's parents had begun searching for her. Later, she came home Tuesday morning and narrated the entire incident following which a rape complaint was registered.
