Police have arrested a youth and are searching for two of his accomplices in connection with the rape of a teenaged girl from Uttar Pradesh, who was lured to Mumbai by a desire to meet film actors.

The girl arrived from Uttar Pradesh on Monday. Mustafa Abdul Sattar, a resident of Ganeshnagar in suburban Bandra, allegedly lured the girl by assuring that he personally knew several heroes and heroines and would introduce her to them, police said.
