The accused, identified as Ravi Chaudhary and Atul Bhadoliya, are daily wage labourers and used to work with a trust managing a temple in Maihar town. The Maihar Temple Management Committee sacked the duo from their positions after a case was filed against them.

Both the accused’s houses were found to be constructed illegally, according to the report. The chief municipal officer of Maihar Municipal Council on Friday issued notices to the families of the two men seeking documents related to their land and buildings, sub-divisional officer of police (SDOP) Lokesh Dabar told PTI.

According to the report, Bhadoliya’s house in Udaipur's Vidisha district was built on government land used for non-agricultural purposes, while Chaudhary's home in Maliyan Tola, New Basti, was built without permission.

The accused allegedly lured the girl to an isolated spot, raped her and inserted a hard object in her private parts on Thursday, the report stated citing police sources. However, this can be confirmed only after receiving her medical examination report, PTI reported quoting a senior official.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Ashutosh Gupta told PTI that the minor is undergoing treatment at Sanjay Gandhi Hospital in Rewa.

The accused, aged 30, were booked under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and produced in a local court on Friday which sent them to 14-day judicial custody.
