KOLKATA: A 17-year-old school girl was allegedly gang raped by unidentified youths in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district, police said Friday.

The incident occurred Thursday evening when the class XI student was celebrating Diwali at her home in the district's Dhalipara area, some 40 km from here.

According to the police complaint filed by the girl's family Friday, the accused used chloroform to make her unconscious and dragged her to a desolate spot and gang raped her.

"We have registered a case of gang rape. No arrest has been made so far," said an officer of the Deganga police station.

The girl, recuperating at Barasat State General Hospital, underwent medical examination to confirm rape.
