They further alleged that the girl threatened the assailants that she would tell the villagers, which prompted the trio to set her on fire.
The assailants then escaped even as her elder sister rushed to the village and raised an alarm. But by the time family of the girl and neighbours reached the spot, the girl had already sustained 80% burns.
The police station in-charge RP Pandey said that girl's family has not lodged an official complaint.
He, however, had added that based on the information available, police teams were raiding different locations in pursuit of the assailants.
