Muzaffarnagar: A 16-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by three youths in a New Delhi-Saharanpur passenger train following which one of the assailants has been arrested, the police said on Monday. The other two youths are absconding and the police have launched a manhunt to nab the duo.

The incident took place in the running train near Kasimpur Kheri railway station on Saturday, said Kiran Raj, Station House officer of the Baraut railway police station.

The victim, a class nine student was returning home to Shamli from Baraut along with her brother-in-law after finding out her examination results, when the assailant intruded in the woman coach of the train and after finding the duo alone in the coach began harassing her, said Raj.

As the two objected to their unruly behaviour, they grew all the more violent and sexually assaulted the girl after attacking and confining the girl's male relative, she said.

After reaching her home, the girl told her family about the incident following which the girl's father reported the matter to the police, which registered a criminal case against the trio.

The police registered a case of sexual assault under sections 7 and 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 and for wrongful confinement and physical assault under sections 345 and 352 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860.
