One of the accused, who works in a factory, is married and has a child, according to the complaint filed by the victim’s father. Pawan Kumar, ACP-1, Greater Noida, said a complaint was filed against the two men at Beta 2 police station under Sections 376 (rape), 384 (extortion) of the Indian Penal Code and corresponding sections of the POCSO Act, the Times of India reported.

An investigation revealed that the men had lured the girls with the promise of marriage. When they demanded money, the girls stole it from their grandfather’s locker.

“Last week, when their grandfather checked his locker, he found that Rs 10 lakh was missing. The girls later admitted to giving it to the two men,” a senior officer said. The accused were produced before a magistrate and remanded in judicial custody on Monday.
