Jaunpur: A 17-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly gang-raped here repeatedly since last December by three persons, following which one of them has been arrested, police said Saturday.
The incident came to light yesterday when the girl, a class 12th student, narrated her ordeal to her mother who filed a complaint with the police.
According to the complaint, the victim was first gang-raped on December 12 last year when she was returning from school, Additional Superintendent of Police Ramji Singh Yadav said.
The three accused abducted her and gang-raped her one by one, Yadav said, adding, they also made a video clipping of the crime.

One of the youths has been arrested for raping and blackmailing the girl, Yadav said, adding, search is on to nab the other accused and to recover the mobile phone carrying the clipping.
The girl has been sent for medical examination, the ASP said.
