Three days after the gang rape of three women of a Dalit family in Seoni district, two women from the same community were gangraped in separate incidents in Damoh district.
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.
