Jaipur: A seven-year-old girl was abducted and raped by an unidentified person in Shastri Nagar triggering protests by locals, police said. As tension prevailed in the area, mobile internet services were suspended on Tuesday in 13 police station areas of Jaipur and security stepped up to prevent any flare-up, they said.

The girl was found near her house on Monday night and was taken to a local hospital where the doctors referred her to JK Lon hospital. Her condition is stated to be stable.

A mob also damaged windowpanes of some cars parked in the streets. “We have deployed additional policemen in the area to maintain law and order. The situation is under control and efforts are being made to arrest the accused,” DCP North Manoj Kumar said. State transport minister Pratap Singh Khachariawas visited the hospital on Tuesday and enquired about the girl’s health.

“This is a heinous crime. The culprit should be hanged. Police are making all efforts to nab the accused,” he said. Additional Director General of Police (civil rights) Janga Srinivas Rao also visited the victim at the hospital.

Meanwhile, authorities have suspended internet mobile services in 13 police station areas in Jaipur from 2 pm on July 2 to 10 am on July 3 after “rumours” were being spread on social media about the incident.

Jaipur divisional commissioner issued orders to mobile internet provider companies to suspend internet in Ramganj, Galta Gate, Manak Chowk, Subhas Chowk, Brahmpuri, Nahargarh, Kotwali, Sanjay Circle, Shastri Nagar, Bhatta Basti, Lal Kothi, Adarsh Nagar and Sadar police stations.
