Gwalior: Three youths were arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Govindpuri area here, police said on Sunday.

Vishambhar Gurjar, Niranjan Gurjar and Rakesh Kushwaha, all in their twenties, were arrested last night and booked under Section 376 (B) (punishment for rape) of the IPC, Gwalior SP Makrand Deoskar told reporters.
According to police, the trio were distributing marriage invitation card last evening when they saw the 16-year-old walking alone in the locality.
They then forced the girl into their jeep and took her to a secluded place where they took turns to rape her, Deoskar said.
The accused were arrested on the basis of the colour of their vehicle and the last two digits of its registration number which were recalled by the victim.
