SHEIKHPURA: A seven-year-old Mahadalit girl from Bihar’s Sheikhpura district was on Monday hospitalized in a critical condition two days after two people gang-raped her while she was sleeping at home.
SHO Ravikant said the girl and her five-year-old brother live with their grandmother, an octogenarian who suffers from hearing impairment and other physical infirmities, while her parents stay in Patna.
The girl told police she was sleeping when the two, covering their heads, raped her.
The SHO said quacks were treating the girl before she was rushed to hospital as her condition deteriorated. “Her relatives reported the case to police late Sunday evening and she was brought to hospital for treatment and examination on Monday.”
He said the girl’s condition was stable and will be produced before a magistrate on Tuesday to record her statement.
