Two youths have been arrested for gang-raping and murdering a 16-year-old girl in Kota in Rajasthan, police said on Friday.
The accused, both aged around 17, lured the girl to a secluded spot around 200 metres from a ‘Dandiya’ event in Oriya Colony on Wednesday night and raped her, Kota Superintendent of Police Anshuman Bhomiya said.
They then killed her by hitting her head with a stone and fled the spot.
The crime came to light when the teenager’s body was found on Thursday morning. The police officer said both the accused have admitted to committing the crime.
