Reports said that the man accused of allegedly raping her has been arrested.

The child spent several hours behind bars after her mother brought her to a women's police station to lodge a complaint against a local goon for allegedly raping her. She was rescued only after locals protested.

Two women constables have been suspended and two sub inspectors including the station-in-charge have been sent to police lines after a TV journalist brought the matter into senior officials' notice, SSP Gulab Singh said.

According to Singh, the minor from Meerpur village in Bulandshahr was found lying unconscious in a field by her parents on Sunday night where she had been dumped after being allegedly raped.

An FIR was lodged with the police by victims' parents but shockingly the staff of the women's police station detained the victim in lock-up.

The local goon accused of raping the minor is absconding, he added.
