LAHORE: A teenage girl was gang-raped by a group of men after being drugged in a guest house in the Mall Road area here on Saturday, police said.

The 15-year-old victim was brought to Services Hospital where reports of initial medical tests revealed that the girl had been subjected to rape.

The teenager, who is a resident of Multan Road, was first kidnapped by unidentified men before she was taken to a guest house in the Mall Road area, said Station House Officer (SHO) Ahmad Usman.
