She had gone to a nearby locality in search of a relative house when the boys forcibly took her to the hostel and raped her, said a police officer.

The three accused have been arrested.

Last month, another shocking case of a gangrape of a girl in Patna had surfaced. In view of widespread protests by activists and an uproar by the opposition in the assembly, police were forced to arrest all five accused.

The accused allegedly videographed the rape and had circulated its CDs and MMS among friends.
