Mumbai: A 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped at Mumbai's Versova on Sunday evening. No arrests have been made so far in the case.

A man also allegedly raped a four-year-old girl on Sunday evening in Mumbai's Oshiwara. The girl is in a serious condition and has been admitted to Cooper Hospital while the accused has been arrested.

A case has been registered under Indian Penal Code Sections 376 (rape), 363( kidnapping) and also under the Juvenile Protection Act 4, 8 and 12.
