Jaipur: A teenaged girl, who was allegedly raped several times by a man who bought her from her aunt, was rescued by police before she could be given to another group in Rajasthan's Dholpur district.

"The 15-year-old girl hailing from Madhya Pradesh was sold for Rs 50,000 by her aunt to Mahendra who allegedly raped her for several days and was planning to sell her in Bharaput," Dholpur Superintendent of Police Rahul Prakash said today.

"Following a tip off, we raided a house and rescued the girl last evening. Mahendra was arrested. A team will now be dispatched to MP in search of her aunt who sold her," he said.

The girl was forced into prostitution by her relatives and the man was also going to hand over her to a group involved in prostitution.

"We produced the girl before child welfare committee today. A medical test will also be conducted," he said.
