The Amritsar Rural Police have arrested three men on charge of gang-raping a 16- year-old girl in Beas.


While Dilpreet Singh, Lovepreet Singh and Harpal Singh of Baba Bakala have been arrested, their two accomplices Love and Channu are absconding.

Amritsar (rural) police SSP Manmohan Singh said that a case under Sections 376-G, 343 and 506 of the IPC and 3, 1 and 12 of the SC/ST (prevention of atrocities) Act has been registered against the accused at Beas police station.

Harjit Kaur, the mother of the girl, complained to police that the minor working as a babysitter was returning home on July 7 when Dilpreet took her to a shop on the pretext of buying a SIM card, bolted it from inside and raped her.

"She alleged that the accused also called up his friends and they too raped her," the SSP said. Police teams have been dispatched to arrest the other accused.
