The parents of a teenage girl in India have caught their daughter's alleged rapists after police refused to register their complaint.

The parents, who are police officers said, another officer accused their daughter of making up a flimsy story.

The 19-year-old victim was returning from a study centre when two men attacked her under a bridge in the city of Bhopal.

After raping her for hours, they tied her up and called two more men who also took turns to sexually assault her.

A gang rape case was registered only after the parents personally caught two suspects and brought them to a police station in the city.

Two other men have been arrested, and a fast-track trial ordered.

Local media reported that at least two police stations initially refused to register a case of rape.

However, two police officers have been sacked for refusing to lodge the complaint.
