This case comes at a time when the Shivraj Singh-led Madhya Pradesh government is running a 15-day ‘Samman’ campaign across the state to make people aware about crimes against women.

The girl was again kidnapped and raped by three truck drivers. However, she managed to flee and return to her home this time. “We’ve so far arrested six accused and hope to catch the others. The case is registered under POSCO and relevant sections of the IPC,” police spokesperson Arvind Tiwari told the news channel.
This incident came days after a 45-year-old woman was grievously injured after four men allegedly raped her and inserted an iron rod into her private parts in Madhya Pradesh’s Sidhi district. The four accused were detained. State Home Minister Narottam Mishra had told reporters in Bhopal that no culprit will be spared.
