In her police complaint,the girl,a resident of Lakshmi Garden,said that she was on her way to a college here to submit her sister’s fees yesterday when five people,including two her neighbours,put a piece of cloth on her nose and took her away in a van.

A medical examination has ruled out sexual assault,police said,adding that a case has been registered and investigations are on.
