GHAZIABAD -- A 13-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two men, of whom one has been arrested, for three days in Loni town in Ghaziabad, police said on Tuesday.

The girl's mother on Tuesday accused Suresh and his friend, Rinku, of raping her daughter. Suresh and his wife Seema, friends of the girl's family, lured her into coming with them to their house on 5 November for short-stay over the weekend, SHO Sahibabad Surender Yadav said.

"The girl was allegedly raped at Suresh's house. She disclosed the matter to her mother after returning home today morning following which a complaint was lodged," he said, adding Suresh and Seema have been arrested while Rinku is absconding.

The victim was threatened of dire consequences by the accused if she disclosed the matter to anyone, he said.

The girl has been admitted at a hospital in Ghaziabad for treatment and medical examination.

The accused have been booked under relevant sections of the IPC and provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, he added.
