An eight-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped and raped by her neighbour in Dholpur district of Rajasthan on Thursday. She was admitted to hospital in a critical condition, the police said.
The girl was kidnapped by the accused while she was playing outside her house and was later raped, the police said.
Police have assured of a thorough investigation.
This crime came days after a woman was allegedly gang-raped by five men in Alwar district, which led to outrage against the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government in the state.
Congress chief Rahul Gandhi met the Alwar gang-rape survivor on Thursday. He said justice will be done.
