Two rapes -- that of a nine-year-old and a married woman -- were reported from the Ballia district during past 24 hours.

Ballia: Two rapes -- that of a nine-year-old and a married woman -- were reported from the district during past 24 hours, with the police managing to get custody of one of the accused.

A person Munna Prasad was caught by the locals and handed over to the police after he allegedly raped the minor girl in Bareva village last night.
In the other incident, a person Munni Lal allegedly assaulted sexually a 40-year-old woman in Bidhara village of the district yesterday, police said.

The woman was on her way to a bank when she was targeted by the accused, who is still at large, they said.

Ironically, Ballia is the hometown of the girl whose brutal gang-rape in Delhi on December 16 last year had led to a nation-wide public outcry.
