The Sriganganagar Police have arrested three persons, identified as Mohammed Rafi, Mewa Singh and Inderjit Singh of Sahuwala village for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl after stopping the two-wheeler, on which she and her male friend, were riding on Wednesday evening at Padampur Road.

The victim had registered a complaint later at the women police station. She said that a youth had come from a field on Wednesday at 7 pm, stopped her and pulled out the key of the scooter. Meanwhile, two more men, who were hiding behind the shrubs, arrived. They demanded money, but when she and her friend said they did not keep money in their purses, the miscreants allegedly dragged the girl into the field and raped her.

As her friend requested the men to let them go, the miscreants allegedly forced him to transfer Rs 5,000 to an account through Google Pay. They also threatened to kill the victim and her friend if they shouted for help.

The cyber team of the police was able to identify the account to which the money had been transferred. The holder of the account was detained after interrogation and the remaining two youths were also nabbed.

Senior police officers inspected the site of the crime. Evidence was collected by the Forensic Science Laboratory staff at the spot. The medical examination of the victim had been done.
