Surat (Gujarat): Two accused have been arrested for raping a 13-year-old minor girl on Monday evening, police officials said.

The police said that the incident took place on Monday evening and a complaint in this regard was registered on Tuesday.

Sajan Mir (19) and his accomplice, Jignesh Chaudhary (26), both residents of Ambedkarnagar in Rander had physically abused the 13-year-old girl, a Rander police official said.

The police said the incident took place after the 13-year-old minor girl, also a resident of Ambedkarnagar, was seen talking to Sajan Mir outside her tuition class.

When the girl's father saw them talking, both of them ran away due to fear, police said.
