Patna, Dec 30 (IANS) Two people have been arrested for allegedly abducting and gang-raping a student in a Bihar village, police said Sunday.

Police said the intermediate student was abducted at gunpoint Friday in Vasudevpur village in Samastipur district, around 100 km from here, when she was returning home on a bicycle from a coaching class.

"She said the accused threatened to kill her if she raised an alarm and gang-raped her first in a sugarcane field and later at a house," Deputy Superintendent of Police Rajesh Kumar said.

The girl fled from their clutches Saturday afternoon and reached the deputy superintendent of police's office with her family members.

She has been sent for medical examination.

Police said the two accused -- Surendra Mahto and Virendra Mahto -- are the girl's neighbours. Surendra is a father of two while Virendra's wife has deserted him.

Last week, a 12-year-old was gang-raped in a village in Patna district. Police have arrested one of the three accused.
