Sultanpur: A 15-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped and held captive for 15 days by three men in Dharauli village in Sultanpur district of Uttar Pradesh.

The incident was reported after she was "freed" on Saturday. According to police the girl went missing on December 14 while going to school.

An FIR has been registered against the three accused. The main accused has been charged with rape, while the other two have been booked for criminal conspiracy. All of them have been absconding since the incident took place.

The incident comes amid national outrage over the gang-rape of a 23-year-old medical student in a moving bus in Delhi. She died on Friday night after battling for life for nearly two weeks.
