A 22-year-old teacher was allegedly gang-raped by three men, who also filmed the act, in a village under Charthawal police circle in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar, police said.

The teacher, employed with a private school, was returning home after meeting some people on Saturday night, when three men accosted her and dragged her to an abandoned house.

She has alleged that one of them raped her, while another filmed it with his mobile phone and the third member guarded the entrance to the house.

The woman also alleged that the accused warned her against speaking about the incident to anyone.

"The rape victim, after informing her family, filed an FIR against all the three accused," SHO Charthawal BN Parashar told HT.

He said all the three accused have been arrested and a case under Sections 376 and 534 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered .

The teacher was sent for medical examination, police said.
