At the hospital where she was rushed by her parents, she had told the police that the three boys poured kerosene and set her on fire after raping her.
The police have detained two of the accused and are on the lookout for the third. Since the accused are minors, they will be booked under the Juvenile Justice Act.
"We have recorded a dying declaration... Based on that two of the accused have been caught; they will be produced in court today," Shankar Raimedhi, Superintendent of Police, Nagaon, told NDTV over the phone.
