Two staffers of the Sri Radha Rani Temple here have been arrested for allegedly raping a pilgrim from Odisha, police said on Friday.
Kanhaiyya Yadav, a watchman, and a cook, Panga Thakur, were taken into custody on Thursday evening on the basis of the pilgrim's medical report.
The victim alleged she was raped on September 11 in the temple premises, police said.
The action came after Mathura's Senior Superintendent of Police Swapnil Mamgai intervened as local police allegedly did not act on the victim's complaint.
The two accused have been suspended by the temple management, according to Krishn Murari Goswami, a senior temple official.
