The five-year-old girl’s mother said her daughter had gone out to play when the incident took place.

Akbarpur Kotwali police station inspector Satish Singh said police were treating this case with caution.

Nevertheless, further action will be taken in this case only after taking legal opinion. The FIR was registered on Tuesday,” he said.
