8-Month-Old Raped, Killed In India

An eight-month-old girl, fast asleep next to her parents in Indore, was taken away and raped in a vacant basement just 50 metres away in the early hours of Friday. The accused, spotted on a CCTV camera carrying the baby on his shoulder, also killed her once he committed the crime. The infant’s body was spotted hours later by a shopkeeper who had gone to the basement to open his shop.

The child’s parents, balloon sellers, were sleeping on the street outside the Rajwada Fort in the city. The accused, a 21-year-old man known to the family, was sleeping close to them, police said.”The body of the infant was recovered from the basement of a commercial building. The accused had kidnapped her early today morning when she was asleep with her parents outside the Rajwada Fort,” HC Mishra, deputy inspector-general of police, Indore, said
