The family members, who confirmed the incident, brought the girl to the Tata Main Hospital for treatment last night but the authorities initially refused to admit her as it was a police case.

The police intervened following which the victim was admitted to the hospital, Superintendent of Police S Karthik said today.

Karthik said they were in touch with the concerned police station in neighbouring Purulia district of West Bengal where the incident occurred. Investigations are on, he said.
