The five-year-old was raped by her 32-year-old neighbour after luring her away with sweets. Accused Jagat has been arrested.

On Monday, after a minor girl complained of rape by an unidentified man in south Delhi on Holi, police registered a case under the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
Police said the minor was taken away by the unidentified person from the Navjeevan Camp Park in Govind Puri area on Monday night.
"The girl was left near her house around 10 p.m. She narrated her ordeal to her mother, who complained to the police. A case was registered under the POCSO Act," Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Banniya said.
"A medical examination at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences corroborated the girl's statement," Banniya said.
