Girl, 5, In Serious Condition After Rape

NEW DELHI (April 20, 2013)--A 5-year-old girl was in serious condition Saturday after she was raped and tortured by a man who held her in a locked room in India's capital for two days, officials said.

The girl disappeared missing Monday and was found Wednesday by neighbors who heard her crying in a room in the same New Delhi building where she lives with her parents, police said.

The girl was found alone, but police say the man who lives in the room was arrested Saturday in Bihar state, about 620 miles east of New Delhi.

D.K. Sharma, medical superintendent of India's largest government-run hospital, said the girl had serious injuries, including a slashed neck and bite marks.

New Delhi residents protested Saturday against what they said was a lack of police action.
