In a shocking incident, a 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her stepfather and his cousin in Kandhla town of Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district, police said on Sunday, adding both the accused also recorded a video of the act.

The police have registered a case against Waseem, the victim's stepfather and his cousin Tanvir - both absconding - under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

According to the complaint lodged by the victim's mother, her daughter was raped by the accused, who also recorded a video of their act and threatened to make it viral if the girl narrated her ordeal to anyone.
