A 15-year-old Sikh girl was allegedly raped by two persons in an ambulance in Pakistan’s Punjab province, the police said on Sunday.

The girl, said to be mentally unstable, had gone missing on Saturday from a gurdwara in Nankana Sahib city, some 80 km from here. When she did not return, her family informed the police.

The girl’s father said the family spotted an ambulance of Punjab Emergency Services Rescue 1122 parked at Nankana bypass. “We heard a girl screaming inside the ambulance. We rushed to the vehicle and found two men were assaulting our girl,” he said, adding that the culprits fled and threw the girl out of the vehicle. The girl was rushed to hospital where her condition was stated to be stable. The accused had been arrested, the police said
