The accused was identified as Tettar Sahani, a resident of Bhawanpur village under limits of Sadar Police Station.

Deputy superintendent of police Anoj Kumar took the cognisance of the matter and said: "A five-year-old girl has been raped in the Sadar police station area. The girl was raped and she is currently undergoing treatment. The accused abducted the child while she was playing outside her house. He took her to a garden and left her there after raping her."
