Madhya Pradesh: A six-year-old girl was raped and was blinded in a savage attack near her home in Damoh in Madhya Pradesh, the police said today. The child has been admitted to hospital in a critical state. She was playing with her friends close to her home last evening when she was drawn away by an unknown man, the police say. She had been missing since then. She was found this morning, unconscious, in an abandoned house in her village. Her hands were tied with rope. “She was raped and has severe injuries to her eyes,” said senior police officer Hemant Singh Chauhan. A police team has gone with the girl and her family to Jabalpur, where she is being treated for severe injuries all over her body.
