The two accused are pursuing engineering and BA. While one of them is a resident of Sector 2, Panchkula, the other is a resident of Manimajra town in Chandigarh.
"The two youths belong to well off families and so does the victim. The duo was known to the girl`s brother.
Initially the girl`s family was reluctant to come forward with the complaint fearing the incident would be prominently highlighted in the media, but later on decided to lodge a case so that the accused are punished under the law, police sources said.
