RAIPUR: An 11-year-old girl was allegedly raped and killed by a guest at a wedding in Kabirdham district of Chhattisgarh, police said.

Uttam Sahu, the 25-year-old accused, has been arrested, Lal Umed Singh, Superintendent of Police, told PTI by phone.

The incident happened on Wednesday night in the district, about 120km from state capital Raipur.
