The incident took place on platform number one at Katni station. The girl from Sidhi district was allegedly 'sold' for Rs 25,000 by the girl's maternal grandmother to a youth in Sagar district.

According to Patrika, the police said that about a week ago, the girl's family had sent her to Katni with a young man named Pintu. The girl was then 'sold' to a youth named Shivam in Sagar district. Here, Shivam molested her for 6 days after which he took her back to Katni on Wednesday night. He then informed his friend, Yashwant Sahu, after which they sexually abused her in a stationary train.

The Katni Government Railway Police have registered the case and investigations have begun. Sahu and Shivam have been named as accused and have been arrested.

In another incident on 26 June, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a man, who abducted her from outside her school in Mandsaur and later tried to kill her.
