The girl, a Class 9 student, is currently in a critical condition and is undergoing treatment at a private hospital.

Police said the accused has been identified but yet to arrested.

According to reports, the police reached the spot after about one-and-a-half hours which shows the failing condition of the law and order situation in Bihar where criminals are acting in broad daylight.

With the incidents of of murders and other crimes on the rise since the ‘Mahagathbandan’ government took over, the BJP has hit out at the Nitish Kumar government, saying that the “jungle raj” has returned to Bihar.

Last week, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said at a press conference that several people, including journalists, have been killed and a temple priest was beheaded since the two parties joined hands to form the government.

He also cited cases of sexual assault against women, loot, and the death of six people in Chhapra after drinking spurious liquor.

“Disorder is spreading in the state at a fast pace. It will not be an exaggeration to say that ‘jungle raj’ returns to Bihar,” Patra said.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has associated the rule of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in the state with ‘jungle raj’ (lawlessness).

He claimed that the BJP’s presence in the state government earlier worked as a restraining influence on crime even though the party did not have home or excise departments.
