Kanpur: A 15-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped by two men in a village in Sachendi area of Kanpur district, police said on Friday.

The incident took place on Thursday night when the girl had gone outside a field to attend nature's call, said Sachendi's police station's officiating in-charge Ashok Kumar.

Two persons identified as Govind Balmiki, 19, and Ajay alias Shiv-Bodhan, 30, raped her in the field, he added.
