In a spine chilling incident, a 14-year-old girl was raped in Bhopal on Tuesday allegedly by a 23-year-old man who befriended her through a dating application. The accused was arrested.

What had happened?

The accused befriended the girl on a dating app about a week back and called her to meet him, Shahpura police station in-charge Chandrabhan Patel said quoting the FIR.
