New Delhi, June 30: Condemning the brutal rape of a minor in Madhya Pradesh, Congress President Rahul Gandhi urged for the speedy justice and said as a nation, we must come together to protect our children. 

Gandhi tweeted “In Mandsaur, MP, an 8-year-old girl was kidnapped and gang-raped, and is battling for her life. The brutality this young child was subjected to sickens me.

“As a nation, we must come together to protect our children and bring the attackers to speedy justice”, he added.

The child was kidnapped while she was waiting for her father outside her school on Tuesday.

She was gang-raped, her throat was slit and left to die. A day later, the Madhya Pradesh police nabbed Irfan alias Bhaiyu, 20, a labourer, on the basis of CCTV footage.

On Friday, the police made another arrest of a construction worker, Asif, 24, after Irfan named him as an accomplice.
