A class X girl is fighting for her life at a Bihar hospital after she was reportedly gangraped by six men in Lakhisarai district.
The girl was abducted after she left her home around midnight on Thursday to defecate in the open.
Initial information about what exactly happened after she was forcibly taken away by the men remained unclear, with some reports saying that she was forced into a railway train, raped and then thrown out of the train at the Kiul station.
What is known for sure is that she was found near the railway tracks on Friday morning and was taken to a local hospital in Lakhisarai. With her condition critical, she was transferred to the Patna Medical College and Hospital where she is fighting for her life.

Sub-Divisional Police Officer Pankaj Kumar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI, “A group of six men are believed to have been involved in the incident.
