Panaji:  The Goa Police on Saturday arrested two people after they were accused in a gang-rape case at Colva, while another person is at large, a police officer said.

The three accused - tourists from Indore - have been charged with robbing and gang-raping a 20-year-old woman late on Friday, while she was visiting Colva beach along with her 22-year-old boyfriend.

"We have arrested Sanjiv Dhananjay Pal, 23, and Ram Santosh Bhariya, 19, both from Indore. We have teams on the lookout for the third accused who is also from the same city. They are tourists who were visiting Goa," Superintendent of Police (South Goa) Arvind Gawas told IANS on Saturday.

The woman, who hails from a nearby village, had also claimed that the sexual assault was filmed by the alleged rapists and she was blackmailed by them against informing the police.

Police have said that medical examination of the victim has confirmed rape.

A police complaint was filed late on Friday at the Colva police station under sections 376 (rape) and 394 (robbery) of the Indian Penal Code.
