Gulbarga: As the gang-rape case in Delhi continues to hog national attention, the rape of a minor girl in a village in this district came to light today, two days after the crime was committed.

The 11-year-old girl was raped in a farm field in Ainoli village in Chincholi taluk on December 22, police said.

Though people from the girl`s side approached the local police station to lodge a complaint, their plea was not entertained. The Child Welfare Committee of Chincholi taluk took up the issue and met District Superintendent of Police N Satish Kumar today to pursue the matter, police sources said.

A search had been launched to nab the culprit who fled the scene after committing the crime, they said adding there were definite clues.
The girl is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Solapur in neighbouring Maharashtra. A police team as well as officials from its women wing left for Solapur to record her statement, police sources said.
