A 14-year-old girl was gang-raped for more than two months in Gorakhpur area of Madhya Pradesh, police said on Saturday. 

The girl's parents approached the police on Friday night alleging that five people, aged between 18 and 21, gang-raped their daughter, Gorakhpur Superintendent of Police Arjun Uike said. 

"The parents approached the police after the news spread that the girl underwent an abortion two days ago," the official said. 

Three accused, identified as Saurabh Chakravarty, Pramod Chakravarty and Honey Chakravarty, had been arrested, he said. 

"Two others, Rahul Chakravarty and Bantu Sonker, are on the run," Uike said. 

The SP said two of the accused would allegedly ask the minor to cook food at their residence for a nominal sum. 

"The five would take her home and gang-rape her repeatedly," the official alleged. 

The SP said the family lives in a slum, and the girl's parents and her brother work as daily wagers. 

The police were also trying to locate the doctor who carried out the abortion. 

Terminating pregnancy of a rape victim without the court's sanction is illegal. 

"We are going to arrest the doctor," the official said. 

He said that a case had been registered against the accused under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
