Pal said the victim’s wounds were healing and she was likely to be discharged from the hospital in about two weeks.

The team of doctors from the hospital were being advised by two private paediatricians to ensure the best treatment for the minor, as directed by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, he said.

To the opposition Congress’ demand that she be shifted to a speciality hospital in Mumbai or Delhi for better treatment, Pal said parents of the minor were satisfied with the medical care she was getting at the hospital and neither of them had demanded that she be shifted elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the two accused Irfan alias Bhaiyu (20) and Asif (24) were arrested in connection with the case and booked under relevant sections of the IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
