Police said four men allegedly raped a 32-year-old woman in Keolari village on Sunday. In the second incident, two persons allegedly raped a Dalit woman in her house in Ajeetpur village.

The accused are at large. Efforts were being made to nab them.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil on Monday informed the Lok Sabha that the Centre will get full information on reports of rape of Dalit women in Madhya Pradesh.

He was responding to Ramjilal Suman raising the issue of three Dalit women, all belonging to one family, being gangraped on Friday.

Suman told the House during Zero Hour that all three have been hospitalised. The Samajwadi Party member said Dalit women in the state have been subjected to such indignities for a long time.
