Patna: A Class 10 girl was allegedly gangraped by a group of six people, and thrown from a moving train before it reached Bihar's Kiul junction. The condition of the girl was said to be critical and a team of doctors was continuously monitoring her health at Patna Medical College and Hospital(PMCH).

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has assured the girl of punishment to the perpetrators of this horrific crime.

The girl hails from Lakhochak village in Lakhisarai district. She stepped out on Thursday night to answer the nature's call and was captured by a group of six people.

"I could recognise Santosh Kumar and Mrityunjay Kumar. They forced them upon me and soon, I fell unconscious," the girl said in her statement.

The accused took her to Vanshipur Railway station and boarded a local train. As the Kiul Junction approached, they threw her from the moving train in the wee hours of Friday. Locals took the girl to a local medical centre where her parents reached in the afternoon.

With her condition continuously deteriorating, the doctors referred her to the Patna Medical College and Hospital where she was initially denied a bed.

She was administered proper treatment only when media took notice of her plight.

Superintendent of Police, Lakhisarai, told ETV that the prime accused, Santosh had already been arrested. However, he denied this being a case involving gangrape. "We have come to know that the victim was having an affair with Santosh. We can't say why she was attacked and raped until the investigation is finished."

A team, led by Lakhisarai DSP Pankaj Kumar, has been formed to investigate the matter.
