Minor girl gang-raped, two youths arrested
Rampur (UP): A 7-year-old girl was gang-raped allegedly by two youths after they forcibly took her to a field in Koop village of the district.
According to police, the minor had gone to a nearby shop on Wednesday to recharge a mobile phone. She was forced by Santosh and Devesh to the farm land and was raped there.
