Patna: In the midst of unceasing allegations over the return of "jungle raj" in Bihar, a minor girl has been allegedly raped by a village sarpanch's son in Purnia district of Bihar.

According to ANI report, the girl was found lying in an unconscious state and was hospitalised in a critical condition. A medical test was conducted on her after which the doctors confirmed the report of sexual assault on her.

The culprit is said to be absconding. 

The report of the rape comes days after RJD MLA Raj Ballabh Yadav was charged of raping a minor girl at his residence in Biharsharif in February this year. At present, Yadav and the other accused persons are lodged in a district jail.

Earlier on several occassions, BJP has accused the Nitish Kumar government of bringing 'Jungle Raj' back to Bihar.
