Mumbai: Police said a 15-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped by two men in a village in the Sachendi area of Kanpur district.
The incident occurred on Thursday night when the girl went outside a farm to participate in nature’s call, said Ashok Kumar, in-charge of Sachin’s police station.
He said that two men identified as Govind Balmiki and 30-year-old Ajay alias Shiva-Bodhan raped her.
