A Class XII student was allegedly gang raped by four youths, including a Bahujan Samaj Party leader, in a moving car in Meerut, police said.

The incident happened late Saturday night, when the girl, a resident of Shastrinagar area was abducted by four youths when she was going to her tuition class at 7 pm. Thereafter, she was forced inside a black SUV car and the accused men took turns to rape her, they said.

The accused then took the girl to a house in Lakhmai Vihar area where they again gang raped her. After raping the girl, the accused dumped her near PVS Mall and fled from the spot, they said.

On the following day, the accused reached the girl's house and threatened to kill her along with her younger brother if she revealed the ordeal to anyone, a senior police officer said.
