In another shocking incident, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her father who was in an inebriated state. The incident took place at their residence in Neemuch town of Madhya Pradesh.

The horrific incident came to light when the cops received a complaint from an anonymous caller on a child helpline number. "The caller told us that during the evening, the man in a drunken state used to beat his daughter every day. Later, officials made efforts to search the victim but were able to find the girl after two days at her residence," Chief Superintendent of Police Rakesh Mohan Shukla informed.
