A three-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her uncle in a village on the outskirts of Vadodara city, the police said in Vadodara on Tuesday. Jawaharnagar Police Station Inspector PM Vasava told PTI that the alleged rape which occurred on Monday night, came to light only on Tuesday morning, after her father saw her sitting in an uncomfortable position at home.
When her father asked her the reason, the girl complained about pain in her private parts as well as stomach and told her mother about that her uncle had done the heinous act, after taking her from her parents late last night to his residence.
