Madhya Pradesh: Minor girl allegedly raped by three men in Khargone a day after Hathras victim dies

Khargone (Madhya Pradesh): A minor girl was allegedly gang-raped by three unidentified men near Marugarh village in Khargone, police said on Wednesday.

The incident took place on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday in the Chainpur police station area, they said.

The girl and her brother were sleeping inside a hut in an agriculture field in the village when the three accused arrived on a two-wheeler and dragged her out, Superintendent of Police Shailendra Singh Chauhan said.

They hit the brother with a stick when he opposed them, the SP said.

The accused then dragged the girl to another part of the field and took turns to rape her, the official said.

Meanwhile, as the brother raised an alarm and alerted the villagers, the accused fled the spot leaving the two-wheeler behind, the SP said.

Chauhan said a case under relevant sections has been registered and the minor girl's medical examination was also conducted.

The two-wheeler used by the culprits turned out to be a stolen one, the SP said, adding that further investigations are on.
