In two separate incidents of rape reported from central Gujarat, a two-and-a-half-year-old girl was raped at Halol in the Pahchmahals district and a 15-year-old girl was raped at Garbada in Dahod district.

The two-and-half-year old girl was raped and then thrown into a thorny bush. Police arrested one Keshavbhai Joshi on Friday night for allegedly raping the girl of his relative while he was visiting their house.

A case of rape and kidnapping was lodged by the girl's father, Hariprasad Daka, with Halol police station under Sections 363, 376, 377, and 342 of the Indian Penal Code, police said. According to the FIR, Joshi visited the house of the complainant. On Friday night, after finishing dinner, Joshi went out of the house while the girl's parents were yet to finish their dinner.

When Daka tried to find out where he had gone, he found his daughter missing. Girl's parents and other neighbours went looking out for the child when they found Joshi at a secluded area near their house. Joshi first refused to confess about the girl's whereabouts. He then told the people looking out for him that he had thrown her into a thorny bush.

Joshi was handed over to the Halol police station and the girl was taken to a local doctor who then referred her to Vadodara civil hospital where she is currently undergoing treatment.
