Ambedkar Nagar (UP): A 14-year-old girl was allegedly burnt to death by three men who kept her in captivity and gangraped the victim for three days at Jahagiraganj area here, police said on Saturday.

The minor was kidnapped on March 22 from Tilaktanda village by the trio -- Kunwar Singh, Bhim Prasad Yadav and Arjun -- and held captive at a hut outside the village where they raped her for three days, DSP Ajay Kumar said.

Fearing that the incident would come to light, the accused yesterday set the hut on fire. The girl managed to come out of the place and jumped into a nearby pond to douse the flames. She was rushed to a hospital in Azamgarh where she succumbed to her injuries, her family members alleged.

Search is on to nab the criminals who are absconding, he said.
