The duo stopped at a place in Tetla village near Pusaur police station due to bad weather conditions.

Later, a few men beat up the girl's boyfriend and threatened him to leave the place.

The five accused then allegedly outraged her modesty and fled from the spot, the ASP said.

They also threatened the victim with dire consequences if she informed about the crime to anyone, he said.

Based on the complaint of the girl, five youths - Lakshminarayan Mahant, Bajrang Mahant, Velore Bhoi, Pradip Gupta and Dinesh Gupta - were arrested, he said adding that further probe was on.
