4-year-old girl allegedly raped, found unresponsive in a field after a 16-hour search

A 25-year-old man in India has been arrested in connection with the alleged rape of a 4-year-old girl who was found dumped in a sugar cane field.

The incident took place in the state of Madhya Pradesh and came to light after the girl’s family reported her missing on Monday morning.

Local police launched a search for the girl and after 16 hours found the child unconscious and covered in blood in a sugar cane field, DaijiWorld reported, citing IANS.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was asked to be transferred to another facility in Indore as she had serious injuries.

Police have arrested the 25-year-old man in connection with the case, which was registered under Section 363 (kidnapping) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). They later added Section 376 (rape) and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO), senior police officer Vivek Singh said.

During interrogation, the accused admitted to raping the girl after taking her to a secluded spot in the field. The unidentified man reportedly lured the girl by showing her videos on his cellphone, NDTV reported.

“The defendant initially misled us again and again. He also named another person. We’re reviewing the information,” Singh said.

It is not known how the defendant knew the victim.

The case is the fourth rape case reported in the state in the past week.

Three days ago, seven men are said to have gang raped a 15-year-old girl in Guna. In the same city, a 17-year-old girl is said to have been raped by a 20-year-old man. In another case in the state, a woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted by two men was found unconscious on the side of the road in a posh neighborhood in Bhopal.

Last month, in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, a 10-year-old girl was found to have been raped by her stepfather for two years. The shocking incident came to light after the man’s daughter-in-law caught him sexually abusing the child. The woman lodged a complaint with the police after witnessing the crime. Police only registered a case under India’s Child Protection Against Sexual Offenses Act after a local politician intervened in the case.
