A 16-year-old married girl was allegedly kept hostage and gang raped by three youths for three days in Alwar district here, police said today. An FIR was lodged by the victim and her maternal uncle on Sunday against the accused--Surendra Meena, Ashok Meena and Mausam Meena-- under IPC Section 363 for abduction, 376-D for gangrape and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, officials of Baswa police station in Dausa district said on telephone.
All the accused are in the age group of 20-21, they said. On February 4, the girl, a victim of child marriage, was standing alone at a bus station in Baswa to go to her parents' place when the accused, known to her, offered her lift in their car.
