"The condition of the minor girl is deteriorating," spokesman of the private hospital in Ramdaspeth area, where she has been admitted, said.

Madhya Pradesh home minister Uma Shankar Gupta visited the hospital on Monday evening to enquire about the victim's health. He assured the victim's family that the culprit would soon be caught by the state police.

According to Madhya Pradesh Police, the girl was allegedly raped by 35-year-old Firoz Khan on April 17 in Ghansaur town, after which he dumped her at a farm.

The girl's parents found her unconscious the next morning and took her to Netaji Subhash Chandra Medical College and Hospital in Jabalpur.
