Two incidents of rape were reported in Bihar on Sunday where a mentally ill woman was allegedly raped by an official of a government hospital, while a minor girl was gangraped by two youths, the police said.

A police official said that a mentally retarded woman was raped on Saturday by Ram Sakal Ram in the premises of Sadar hospital in Motihari, district headquarters of East Champaran.
