Mumbai shamed again: 18-month-old raped

January 05, 2006 14:25 IST

In a shocking incident, a youth allegedly kidnapped and raped a one-and-half-year-old girl near Sion railway station in north central Mumbai late Wednesday night.

Police, on Thursday, said that Mohammed Moin Khan allegedly kidnapped the infant who was sleeping with her mother on the roadside at 0030 hrs, and later raped her. The 24-year-old then took the victim to his house.

When his parents inquired about the girl, he could not give any satisfactory reply after which they handed the infant over to the Dharavi police, they said.

Meanwhile, the girl's mother had also lodged a missing complaint at the same police station. The infant was handed over to her after identification. The victim was later admitted to the government-run J J Hospital, the sources added.

The accused is absconding.
