Rourkela: The Sector 7 police today arrested three youths for allegedly gang-raping a minor girl in the area on September 22.
Police said that the victim had been to her relative’s house to celebrate a local festival. “While she was returning the accused asked her to drop her at home and raped her. They also threatened her of dire consequences if she told anyone about the incident,” said a police official.
