It needs to be reported here that the brutal rape incident resembling the Nirbhaya case was reported on Tuesday night and the girl's condition is critical. The girl was lying there in pain for around an hour on Alwar road when she was spotted by the public, who informed the police. The police then rushed the girl to a local hospital, where she was admitted to the ICU. As her condition was serious, she was shifted to Jaipur hospital late at night. The gang rape accused are yet to be identified even after the passing of one complete day.
Meanwhile, Superintendent of Police Tejaswini Gautam said, "The kid is presently at JK Lon in Jaipur. Our primary concern is her health and hence she was shifted there. We have formed an SIT team, including six SHOs who are searching for technical and scientific evidence to arrest the accused," she said. The minor was thrown near the culvert, Gautam informed. He said, "We came to know that the minor was missing from a nearby village Malakheda at around 4 p.m. on Tuesday. We informed her parents and they identified their kid."
The police are on the lookout for the accused. CCTV footage is being checked, informed officials. Superintendent of JK Lon Hospital, Dr Arvind Shukla, said seven doctors are treating the girl.
