Police registered on Monday a case against an unidentified person for attempting to rape a 6-year-old girl -- second case of sexual assault against minors in Jaipur in the last two days.

The incident happened around 3am when the girl was asleep on a road with her family, police said.

“The parents of the girl work as labourers and were sleeping at a place near the 200 feet bypass where several such people were resting. The girl’s mother woke up around 3am and noticed that her daughter was missing,” said sub-inspector Sharwan Lal of Shyam Nagar police station.

An alarm was raised after the control room was informed, police said.

“We reached the spot, and searched for the child; we found her 50 feet away from the place where her parents were sleeping,” said Lal. “Injury marks were visible on her lips and face; she was bleeding.”

The girl was rushed to the JK Lone hospital where doctors confirmed that someone had attempted to rape her, but escaped after the alarm was raised, police said.

“We barricaded nearby areas and searched for the accused, but he managed to give us the slip. We suspect that the accused had picked up the child from near her parents when she was sleeping before trying to commit the crime,” said the sub-inspector.

The case was registered under section 376/511 (attempt to rape) of the IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

“We are searching for the accused,” said Lal.
