Protests snowball over gang rape of girl in Mandsaur

An 8-year-old girl who was gang-raped and assaulted in India's Madhya Pradesh is recovering but remains traumatized, doctors said on Saturday, while protests were held across the state demanding quick justice.

She is presently battling for her life in the hospital.

After Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the brutality the girl was subjected to, sickened him, the BJP's Amit Malviya hit out, saying the Congress had used the crime as a "political tool". A day later, the Madhya Pradesh police arrested Irfan alias Bhaiyu, 20, a labourer, on the basis of CCTV footage. Additional Superintendent of Police SS Kanesh said 24-year-old Asif, a construction worker, was the main accused's accomplice.

He was booked under relevant sections of the IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. The minor victim is now battling for her life in a hospital where the doctors are operating multiple surgeries to stitch back her ripped intestines and her slashed throat.

Several political leaders and eminent personalities have reacted to the horrific incident on the social media. What's happening to this world?
