Three youths on Tuesday allegedly tried to set a school girl on fire on a moving bus after she resisted their molestation bid in Muradnagar area in Ghaziabad.

The girl, a student of 12th standard, was returning home from her school in a private bus when the youths started molesting her, police said.

"When the bus reached Muradnagar area the three youths suddenly started molesting the girl. After some time, the girl mustered courage and slapped one of the youths," a senior police said.
