The sexual assault took place on Tuesday night at Bannu Nagaria village in Shahjahanpur when the sisters had gone to answer nature's call, a police official said.

The two girls, one 15 and the other 17, were beaten up by the attackers. One of them was seriously injured.

The incident took place at around 9 pm when three unidentified persons dragged them to a far off field and allegedly gangraped them, said Om Prakash Gautam, in-charge of the Madnapur police station.

When the girls resisted, they were beaten.

Police filed a case against three unidentified men based on the father's complaint, circle officer Tilhar Arun Chandra said. A manhunt has been launched to nab the culprits, he added.

A medical examination of both girls will be done.
