Srinagar: A young woman has accused two Army personnel of "abduction and rape" in Kulgam district of south Kashmir, official sources said on Thursday.

The woman, a resident of Gujjardara-Manzgam, reported to police that she was abducted by some unidentified army personnel from Kheranbal Behak on July 19 and gang raped, they said.

She claimed that she was released last night by the armymen.

Senior police officers rushed to the concerned police station in Kulgam and recorded her statement, the sources said, adding the woman will be sent for medical examination.

Meanwhile, tension gripped Damhal Hanjipora, 110 kms from here, as people came out on the roads and held demonstrations demanding stern action against the erring personnel, the sources said, describing the situation as tense but under control.

Defence spokesman Lt Col J S Brar was not immediately available for comments as he was out of town.
