Tension prevailed in riot-hit Muzaffarnagar Monday after reports of a girl living in a relief camp being abducted and later raped surfaced in the area. Two persons allegedly involving in the gruesome incident have been arrested, police said.

Two persons who have been identified as Sachin and Sunil Kumar were arrested on Monday and produced in the court. The court sent them to judicial custody for fourteen days, they said.

The girl (20), who originally hails from Laakh village, the epicentre of the September violence, has been living in a relief camp in Jogia-Khera, was allegedly abducted by a group of Jat youths while she was collecting dry woods for cooking. The abductors later took her to nearby Fugana village and raped her.

The incident occurred Sunday. A medical test has confirmed rape.

The accused also threatened the victim of dire consequences if she disclosed the incident with anyone. The girl however informed her family about the incident following which her father lodged a complaint with the local police station.

This is not the first incident of rape of the victims living in relief camps. Few days ago three other girls had complained of rape and complaints were lodged with the police. The police had also arrested about six persons allegedly involving in the case.

Fresh cases of rape have sent shock waves in the riot-hit areas. The victims said that they fled their villages to save their lives but are now struggling to save their dignity and honour.

Violence broke out in Muzaffanagar on September 07 and later spread to nearby villages and towns including Meerut and Shamli. More than 50 people have been killed and hundreds were displaced following the violence which is termed as worst in western Uttar Pradesh.
