Seven tribal girls were allegedly gangraped by armed men at a brick kiln in Kushinagar district of Uttar Pradesh, the police said in Lucknow on Friday.

The girls were working at a brick-kiln at Pipra Jatampur village under Kubersthan police station when they were allegedly raped on Sunday night by bandits.

The incident came to light on Wednesday when a case of rape under section 376 IPC was registered at Kubersthan police station and the victims, aged between eleven and sixteen years, were sent for medical examination, Kushinagar Superintendent of Police Ram Kumar told reporters.

No arrest has been made in the case so far, he said. The alleged bandits, who struck at the makeshift quarters of the tribals from Jharkhand, also ransacked their belongings after beating up the men-folk.
