The main accused in the rape case of a 15-year-old girl in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain has been arrested, the police have said. The horrifying visuals from Ujjain, which show the 15-year-old girl, semi-naked, bleeding after rape and going door-to-door for help, had sparked outrage across the country.
An autorickshaw driver was questioned yesterday after the police scanned CCTV footage of the locality where the teenager was seen seeking help.
The police said the survivor is stable after surgery, but they have not taken a statement yet since she is incoherent. She is unable to tell where she is from, who are her parents or any other relative, a police officer said.
