Meerut: Three minors, including two girls and a boy, were allegedly raped and sodomised by three persons in two separate incidents in a village under Partapur police station in the district, police said on Thursday.
An eight-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped by two teenagers on Tuesday when she went to a nearby shop in her village to purchase some items.
The two teenagers, residents of the same village, lured her to a nearby agriculture field and raped her, police said. The victim's family complained that as some locals were pressurising them, they were not able to report the matter on Tuesday itself, they said.
