One-and-half-year old baby raped in Chhattisgarh village, two held

KANKER: A one-and-half-year-old child was allegedly raped by a man in Chilhati village, under Korar police station in the naxal-affected Kanker district of Chhattisgarh on Thursday late night. The accused has been arrested.

Sub Divisional Officer Police (SDOP) Veerendra Sharma said on Friday that the child, daughter of a farmer had reached Chilhati from Dudhawa village to participate in a marriage function along with her mother.

The accused, identified as Gopal Churendra (23), resident of Chilhait village, had also reached to participate in the marriage function on Thursday night. During the marriage function, he took the baby along with him on the pretext of getting some sweets. Gopal was accompanied by Vasudev Kosma (34), resident of Janjalipara under Korar police station, the SHO said.  

The accused duo then took the baby to an isolated place near to the wedding venue where Gopal sexually exploited the child while Vasudev helped him in the sordid act, the SHO said.

After committing the heinous crime, they fled from the spot leaving the little girl bleeding at the spot.

The condition of girl is stable but she has been referred to Raipur for better treatment, the SHO maintained.
