Jamshedpur, June 11: Three men have been arrested on the charge of raping a minor girl in Sidhgora area of Jharkhand’s East Singhbhum district, a police officer said today.

The arrests were made on the basis of description of the accused provided by the girl, Kumar said, adding that she has been sent to government-run M G M Hospital for a medical test.
