HARIPUR: Three persons, including a van driver, allegedly gang-raped a teenage girl near Baldhair, police officials said on Sunday.

Officials of the Sera-e-Saleh Police Station quoted the 17 year-old-victim, a resident of Kokal Barseen village, as saying that she had left her home after an argument with her mother on Saturday afternoon and started walking towards Havelian.

After some distance, she said, a Suzuki van stopped near her and she took the front seat of the vehicle.
