A three-year-old girl was allegedly raped and found unconscious in naked condition hanging upside down from a tree at Banka in this district of Bihar today.

The villagers brought the girl with serious injuries down from the tree after they discovered her this morning. She was rushed to a private clinic from where she was referred to the Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital. Her condition is stated to be serious, police officials said

The case seemed to be of rape and torture, but anything could be said with certainty only after medical examination reports come. One Muhammad Parvez was arrested in this connection, police said.

Madhubani Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Kumod Kumar said the child had gone missing three days ago from a private hospital at Aunsi Zero Mile area in the district, where her father Muhammad Sadiq was undergoing treatment.

The family members searched for her in vain and then informed the police about it. Meanwhile, the victim's father accused the police of not taking any action for two days despite being informed about the missing kid.
