A teenager was allegedly gang-raped by her neighbour and his two friends in Begampur area of outer Delhi, police said on Thursday.

According to the police, the girl, who studies in Class 9 at a government school nearby, had gone missing from her home on February 25 following which her parents approached the local police station.

"The girl, however, could not recall the sequence of events and maintained that she had left her house along with a female friend," the officer said, adding that police was "waiting for her condition to improve so that she can give exact details".
Police suspect that the accused could be juveniles. Further investigations are underway.
