The minor girl of Lakhochak village was gang-raped when she had gone out of her home on Friday night to answer the call of nature, Chanan police station in-charge Sunil Kumar Jha, who is a member of the SIT, said.

The accused then took her to nearby Banshipur station, boarded a local train and threw her off the running train at Kiul station, Jha said, adding that her relatives found her lying by the railway tracks next morning.

She was taken to District Sadar Hospital from where she was referredto Patna Medical College and Hospital.

One of them was arrested yesterday from Lakhochak village, Jha said.

The accused, who claimed he was a minor, was remanded to judicial custody.

The other accused identified by the rape victim was also accused in the murder case of his elder brother's wife last year and was absconding in that case too, Jha said.
