A teenager has allegedly been gangraped by four boys at a city hotel, local police said on Saturday.

The 17-year-old girl filed the complaint on Friday alleging that she was gangraped by her boyfriend and three of his friends while two others helped them in the act, police inspector of Maninagar Police Station AG Gohil said.

"We have arrested five persons in the case so far while the sixth accused is absconding," Gohil said.

The girl reportedly went missing on July 26 after which her father lodged a complaint of abduction with Maninagar Police Station, he said.

"According to the girl's complaint the boy took her to a hotel in Kagdapith area of the city and raped her. She also alleged that later he called up his five friends to the hotel where three of them raped her and two others helped them," Gohil said.

The local police force arrested five people during the night after receiving the girl's complaint, he said.
