A minor was abducted, raped in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur district by an unidentified person and left in a secluded place, The Times of India reported on 27 June.
Quoting the Central Kotwal Police as a source, TOI reported that the seven-year-old went missing from her school in Hafiz Colony on 26 June afternoon and was found abandoned near Lakshman Darwaza on 27 June morning around 10 am.
