New Delhi: An 11-year-old girl was repeatedly raped allegedly by two men for about a month in the national capital.

Police on Tuesday said they had arrested Anil Kumar and Mohammed Umar. The incident was reported from Patel Nagar in Central Delhi and the victim, a class IV student, was living in their neighbourhood.

"Umar has been allegedly raping the girl for the past one month while his friend Anil too raped her a few days ago," a senior police official said.

The incident came to light when the victim told her sister and later her uncle about it and they approached the police.

After a medical examination confirmed rape, the duo were arrested.
