Investigating officer Yashwant Goyal said the girl had been admitted to a hospital in Gwalior in serious condition. She received a fracture in her ribs and legs and also deep wounds in her private parts.

According to the complaint, the 16-year-old girl was abducted by two persons when she was on her way to coaching.

“They raped her and also thrashed her brutally. Later, they threw her from the bridge. The girl was found in an unconscious state by a person who informed her family and admitted her to the hospital,” said Goyal.

Goyal said that a special unit has been formed to arrest the accused persons, adding they have booked the accused under Protection of Children from Sexual offence (POCSO), and sections 376 (D) (gangrape), 366 (abduction) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code.
