In a spine-chilling incident similar to that of Nirbhaya gangrape case of December 2012, a 14-year-old girl was brutally gang-raped by six minors in Lakhisarai district in Bihar before she was thrown out of a moving train in the early hours of Saturday (June 17) only to be left unattended for hours at the hospital. She was then taken on-board a train where they raped her again and wounded her private parts. When she regained consciousness, the girl found herself in a train, after which her two neighbours pushed her out of the moving train.

The Class 10 girl is a resident of a village in Lakhisarai district. They threw her out of the train as Kiul Junction, after which she was taken to a medical centre nearby by the locals. As her condition deteriorated Saturday afternoon, she was referred to Patna Medical College and Hospital, where she was allegedly left unattended on the floor of the emergency ward for nearly 14 hours.

One of the six sexual attackers of the girl has been arrested and five others are on the run, the police said. "The victim is still critical but we are hopeful that her condition will improve", said a hospital official, according to The Indian Express.

Mueller's probe was already investigating Kushner's contacts with Russian officials during Trump's presidential transition period. At the time of that report it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner's business dealings.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has also assured the victim that the perpetrators of this horrific crime will be given the required punishment. "Necessary action is being taken and the accused can not be spared", he said.

After denying a bed initially, the hospital admitted her and she has been kept under constant observation due to her critical state. She was found in an unconscious state near Kiul junction by some passersby and later her family was informed of her location by the police. A team, led by Lakhisarai DSP Pankaj Kumar, has been formed to investigate the matter.
