New Delhi: A 17-year-old girl was raped allegedly by her two neighbours in south-west Delhi when they were returning after shopping, police said today.

The incident was reported from Mahipalpur yesterday. Dharmender (31) and Praveen (29), both property dealers, were arrested after the girl's family approached police accusing them of raping her, a senior police official said.

The victim, a Class VII student of a government school in Palam village, and the family were friendly with the property dealers and yesterday, they offered her a lift when she wanted to go for shopping.

When they were returning, the official said, the property dealers allegedly took turns to rape her after driving to a secluded place.

She was later dropped at her home and threatened with dire consequences if she revealed the incident to anyone.

The incident came to light when she told her mother, who runs a cosmetic shop in Mahipalpur, about the incident.

They approached the police which took her to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital where a medical examination confirmed rape.

On the complaint, the property dealers were arrested. "The car in which the rape occurred had tinted glass and we assume that the incident took place in a secluded place," the official said.
