Police have arrested two men in connection with the alleged gangrape of a 17-year-old girl in east Delhi on 26 June.

The victim, who works as a domestic help, reportedly told the police that one of the accused, who is a scrap dealer, had promised her a job in a private school in the area.

The Times of India reported that the incident occurred around 6.30PM, when the girl had gone to a market in her area. "The accused, who owns a scrap shop in the market, saw the girl and told her that he could get her a job in a school. He then took her to the school," the daily quoted a police officer as saying.

The officer said that the victim entered the premises of the school with the help of the security guard. The TOI reported that the accused asked the girl to wait, telling her he would get her in touch with a teacher for an interview.

"She said within 15 minutes, the man returned with the guard and they locked the room from inside. She said the duo then took turns to rape her. When she tried to raise an alarm, they fled," a police officer was quoted as saying.

The girl narrated the incident to her mother, who then filed a complaint with the Jagatpuri police station. The girl was sent for a medical examination and an FIR was registered.
