The Shiv Sena supporters demanded police action against the culprits. Pathankot senior superintendent of police Surinder Kalia said the police were in the process of collecting evidence regarding the allegations made by the girl and her family.

The girl, a resident of Manwal village near here, said that on Thursday night she heard a knock on her door. When she opened the door, she was dragged away by two young men to a guava orchard in the dera and raped repeatedly.

The girl said she was left tied in the orchard and found in the morning by her family. She said she could identify her alleged rapists. Her disabled brother said he tried to save her, but could do little in his condition. "The dera head refused to open the door; when he did, I and my family entered the premises, but could not find my sister," he said. "It was only in the morning that we found her and informed the police."

Meanwhile, Sena activists said their protest was aimed at showing resentment against the police, who were "slow" to register the case. They lifted the road blockade after police assured speedy action.

Patients had difficulty reaching the hospital due to the blockade, which continued for more than two hours.

Senior superintendent of police Surinder Kalia said he had asked his officers to provide speedy justice to the girl. He said deputy superintendent of police Ranjit Singh was taking stock of the case and the medical examination of the girl was awaited.
