A Class XII student was reportedly raped by five youths for over three days in Himachal Pradesh's Manali town, police said on Wednesday.

Police said they had received a complaint about two Class XII girls going missing on June 17.

The girls were found on June 20. Initially, they did not claim any sexual assault but during questioning, one of them claimed she was raped by three youths from Punjab, and two locals thereafter, Superintendent of Police, Kullu, Shalini Agnihotri said.

The incident took place between June 17 and June 20, she said.

Police have arrested three accused from Bhatinda, Punjab. The two others are on the run.

Responding to a question, Agnihotri said, "As per law, it is rape even if consensual physical relations were made as the girl is a minor."

An FIR has been registered under relevant sections of the IPC and POCSO Act.

The three arrested youths have been remanded to police custody by a local court, the SP added.
