An eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an unidentified man in an under-construction building near Sarayipalya in Hennur on Tuesday evening.

The victim, Priya, (name changed) is the daughter of a meat shop owner and a III standard student in a private school.

Police said the incident occurred around 7.45 pm when Priya was returning home after buying medicine for her mother. An unidentified man dragged her into the under-construction building and raped her, police said.

As the girl did not return home for more than 30 minutes, her anxious mother went in search of her and found her lying on the floor of the building in a semi-nude condition. She called her husband and they found injuries on her private parts.

She informed the police and rushed the girl to Bowring Hospital, where she is undergoing treatment.

The girl’s father filed a case. Police are questioning a suspect.
