A group of inebriated army men allegedly gangraped a 14-year-old girl on board the Howrah-Amritsar Express after forcing her to drink alcohol, police said on Monday.

Sources said the girl, a resident of Kolkata, boarded the Punjab-bound train at Howrah on Sunday but entered the coach reserved for army personnel by mistake.

One of the jawans got her drunk and two others then raped her when she went to the bathroom.

Social workers found her unconscious on the train when it stopped in Jharkhand’s Madhupur station.

“We have arrested one Mandreesh Tripathi who had offered liquor to the minor,” said Madhupur GRP’s officer in-charge, Arjun Tiwari. Sources said Tripathi has confessed he forced the minor to drink.

The girl was in shock and needed counselling.
