Madhya Pradesh police on Thursday arrested a man and his accomplice for abducting, raping and killing a two-year-old girl in Jabalpur district, 370 km east of Bhopal.

The prime accused is a 21-year-old youth, a resident of a village in Jabalpur district. He is alleged to have abducted the child from her house, where she was sleeping with her mother on the night of September 17 and committed the crime with the help of an accomplice, a 20-year old youth from the same village, said Shivesh Singh Baghel, additional superintendent of police, Jabalpur.

The police officer said the body of the girl was recovered from an agricultural field the next day. The post-mortem report confirmed rape with the girl.

“The father of the girl lodged a complaint at Shahpur police station. During the investigation, police found that on the night of the crime, about 30-35 people had gathered in a neighbouring village to participate in a birthday party,” said Baghel.

“He told police that he was in an inebriated state in the night. He was familiar with the father of the victim. He entered the house of the victim at night which was not locked from inside and abducted the girl,” said the additional SP.
