ALIGARH: A 14-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped by two youths in Atrauli town here, police said today.

Additional Superintendent of Police Brijesh Singh said a woman who stayed in a neighbouring house lured the victim on some pretext and locked her inside her house.

Two youths, identified as Sailesh Singh and Lokesh, who are outsiders, were already inside the house when the girl entered.

The victim, sensing that something was wrong tried to escape, but her attempt was foiled with the help of the woman.

She succeeded in raising an alarm and neighbours rushed in to release her from the clutches of the captors, police said.

All three have been arrested, police said.

As news of the rape incident spread, members of the Valmiki community staged a protest at the Atrauli Police Station, police added.

Several political leaders, including Rajveer Singh, MP from Etah also rushed to the scene of the crime and assured the victim's family of prompt action against the culprits.
