Bahraich (UP): A seven-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her cousin brother in a village here, police said today.

The incident took place on June 18, when the girl was alone in her house and her cousin brother Sheebu (24) raped her, they said.

When the family members returned and decided to lodge an FIR, they were forcible stopped by village head Shabban and the accused and were subsequently locked in a room.

When police came to know about the incident yesterday through neighbours, they rescued the family and arrested the accused.
