Two of the three men, accused of sexually assaulting two Japanese women in the Taj city, were arrested on Monday.

The accused -- Sunny, Raees and Rajan -- were identified on the basis of information and evidences provided by the victims, Atsu Koki Yosim and Mikokava Kubo.

Of the three, Rajan and Raees had been nabbed, the police said. The two Japanese women alleged that they were gang-raped by three men, who lured them into a hotel and offered drinks laced with sedatives on September 19.

The two tourists lodged a complaint with the IGI airport police on Saturday night. The women, aged 24 and 25, came to the city to see the Taj Mahal.
