Two policemen were suspended on Wednesday for allegedly gang-raping a minor girl in Uttar Pradesh town Kanpur's Govindnagar locality.

The minor, a student of 10th standard, has claimed that the policemen,  police inspector Durga Ramkant Pandey and police soldier Praveen Upadhyay, abducted her on a motorbike and took her to a guest house where they gang-raped her.

She alleged they took an undue advantage of their police authority and threatened her, and later shooed her away. 

The girl said the two policemen used to eve tease her regularly. 

The police stationed at the Govind Nagar Police station refused to register a FIR on the victim's parent's plea.

The matter was highlighted only after a social worker Lakshmi Gautam intervened.

The case was then brought to the notice of Superintendent of Police (SSP), Mathura and was registered subsequently. 

An investigated report is to be handed over to the SSP within 24 hours.
