In the FIR, the girl mentioned the complete details of the accused, who were identified as Naveen and Rajesh Singh, on the basis of which the duo was arrested on Monday from Sarojini Nagar and was sent to 14-day judicial custody.

A police official said, ‘The girl was depressed as both the accused promised her of a committed relationship and  made physical relations with her. On 31 December, the girl finally narrated her story to her mother, who advised her to lodge a complaint against the two.’

The girl had met the accused through a social networking site, on which she had created an account in 2011. She firsy became friends with Singh.
