“We have also procured one-day remand of the accused. The car in which the girl was raped has been impounded and forensic examination of the vehicle has been done,” said the DSP.

In his complaint, father of the minor girl said his daughter had gone to her uncle’s house at around 8 pm on Saturday, but did not return. While he searched for her, the girl turned up and informed him that she was abducted and raped by two persons in a moving four-wheeler. Later, the family admitted the minor to the Rajindra Hospital.
