New Delhi: A 16-year-old girl has allegedly been gang raped by five persons on knife point in East Delhi's Madhu Vihar area, police said on on Thursday.
Three of the accused, including two juvenile, have been arrested and efforts were on to apprehend the remaining two, they said.
The incident took place last evening when the girl, who studies in class XI, had gone to meet some friends in DDA Park in the area.
As she was chatting with them, two boys who were known to them joined the conversation.
The two then took her to a secluded spot near the railway line in Chandra Vihar area on some pretext where the remaining three were present.
"By the time the girl realised that she was in danger, she was overpowered by the group of men. All of them then took turns to rape her at knife point and threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone," said a police official.
However, the girl somehow reached home and revealed her ordeal to her parents who in turn approached police.
A case under POCSO, rape, criminal intimidation and other sections of IPC was registered in this connection, after a medical examination of the victim confirmed rape.
Two juvenile and 20-year-old Anil Handla were nabbed from the same area after the victim's statement.
"Efforts are on to nab the remaining accused who are said to be in their early 30's," the official said.
