Two men have been arrested for the alleged rape of a teenaged Assamese girl in Mahipalpur area of South Delhi, police said on Sunday.

The accused have been identified as Rahul and Haroon, both in their 20s and residents of Tezpur, Assam. Police said the duo was arrested following a complaint by the girl.

“In her complaint, she claimed that the men – whom she has been friends with since well before leaving Tezpur some months ago – confined her at a rented house in Mahipalpur and sexually exploited her,” said a senior police officer.

“The PCR vehicle took her to the Safdurjung Hospital for a medical examination even as senior officials were informed about her allegation. A case was registered at the Vasant Kunj (north) police station after medical tests confirmed that she had been sexually assaulted,” the officer said.
