A 14-year-old girl was raped allegedly by three minor boys, two of whom are her cousins, in Khajuraho, the police said on Sunday.

The incident took place on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday, Khajuraho Sub-Divisional Officer of Police Irshad Mansuri said.

“The three accused, in the age group of 14-16 years, two of whom are her cousins, raped the minor girl,” the officer said.

“One of the accused entered the girl’s aunt’s house, where she was staying, and lured her outside. Then they raped her at a deserted area,” he said.

The girl was living with her aunt as her father, a construction labourer, had gone to Delhi in connection with some work, Mr. Mansuri said.

He said they have been also booked under relevant provision of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

The girl is undergoing a medical test.
