Faizabad: A teenaged dalit girl was allegedly raped by two men in Anjrauli village of the district, police said.

The girl, who had gone to attend a religious function on Wednesday at her neighbours place, was allegedly abducted and raped by Ramesh Yadav and Mahesh Yadav in Khandasa area of the district, police said.

They took her to the outskirts of the village and raped the girl, studying in class 10. Her father works as a labourer in Delhi.

An FIR has been registered against the accused.

In another incident, a 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by the owner of a photo studio in Fakharpur area in Bahraich on Friday, a senior officer said.

Superintendent of Police Shailendra Pati Tripathi said the studio owner was absconding.

The state had witnessed a spate of rape cases early this week, prompting the Union Home Ministry to seek a report from the Uttar Pradesh government on the prevailing law and order situation in the state.
