Two minor sisters, aged one and four years, were allegedly abducted and raped in Indore city of Madhya Pradesh, police said on Saturday. One suspect has been detained in the case.

The two girls were abducted on Friday night when they were asleep with their parents inside a makeshift hut at a construction site in MG Road area, police said.

The girls’ father works as a watchman at the construction site, said Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Harinarayanchari Mishra. The parents realised in the morning that the girls were missing and started a search, he said.

Both were found near the hut in a brutalised condition, Mishra said, adding that a police team reached the spot after getting information about the incident and took the girls to a government hospital.

“We have detained a suspect who is being questioned. We are also examining CCTV footage in the area,” the DIG said.
