A 13-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped at a village in Odisha's Keonjhar district, police said today.

The three accused persons, who are aged between 19 years and 25 years were arrested today following a complaint by the rape survivor's family, the police said.

The three accused have been sent for medical examination and investigation is on, said Ghatagaon police station sub-inspector Nayana Bahera.
