Kolkata; Dec.29: A minor girl alleged that two Army jawans raped her on Monday inside a compartment of the Howrah-Amritsar Express, after being forced to consume alcohol by a third jawan, an RPF official said.
Sources said the girl, a resident of Kolkata, boarded the Punjab-bound train at Howrah on Sunday but entered the coach reserved for army personnel by mistake.
One of the jawans got her drunk and two others then raped her when she went to the bathroom.
According to sub-inspector P Jani, the local police got a message from Howrah RPF, which had received a complaint from the girl's father that his daughter has allegedly 'fled' and was travelling by the train. After receiving the message, the RPF raided the train at the Madhupur railway station and found the girl.
The jawan who had allegedly forced her to consume liquor was arrested on the girl's complaint while the other two accused were absconding, Mr Jani added.
The girl was sent to a hospital for a medical test.
