A 17-year-old blind girl was kept hostage for three days and gang-raped in Banthri village, police said on Sunday.

The girl, who belongs to a village under Kotwali police station area, was lured by a woman identified as Changi onJanuary 25, Inspector In-charge K P Singh said.

Changi handed over the victim to four persons who kept her hostage in Banthri village and repeatedly raped her, he said.

Fearing the mounting police pressure, the accused on Saturday fled after abandoning her. Following a complaint by the victim's father, an FIR has been registered and four accused, including the woman, have been arrested.

Hunt is on for one more accused, the inspector said, adding that the girl was sent for medical examination in which rape was confirmed.
