They have been charged with abduction and under relevant sections of the IT Act. Deepesh, in addition, faces sexual assault charge, he said.
In her complaint, the girl said she was was on her way to a coaching class on January 30 when the trio (who apparently knew her) convinced her to join the birthday party of their friend.
They took the girl to a house, where Deepesh allegedly raped her, while Suraj and Ritesh made an objectionable video clip of her, it said.
Ritesh then demanded Rs 50,000 from the girl`s family and threatened to upload the clip on Internet if the money was not paid.
Fed up with his threats and constant harassment, the girl and her family lodged a police complaint.
