Two Indian students have been charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl as she slept on a train from Melbourne.

Sukhjinder Singh, 22, and Amarjit Singh, 28, are accused of attacking the girl in her seat as the train travelled through southern New South Wales, police said adding that the two have been refused bail.

The girl woke up as the men began to restrain her about 3am on Wednesday on the Melbourne to Sydney train.

"The girl was then allegedly sexually assaulted before she broke free and sought assistance from rail staff," police said in a statement.

Rail staff contacted police, who met the train at Goulburn railway station.
