New Delhi: A 200 ml bottle and pieces of candle were inserted into the private parts of the five-year-old rape victim, a doctor said Friday, adding that he had "never seen such a case".

"Upon examination, we found a 200 ml bottle and two or three pieces of candle inserted into her private parts. This is the first time that I have seen such barbarism with a five-year-old," R.K. Bansal, medical superintendent, Swami Dayanand Hospital, told reporters.

"There were injuries on her lips and cheeks and bruise marks on her neck, suggesting that attempts were made to strangle her. The blood pressure was way below normal, and she had fever when she was admitted," the doctor said.

"The child's condition is very critical. She is in ICU right now and will be under observation for the next 24-48 hours," he said.

The girl was abducted April 15 and kept hostage for two days without food and water in a flat owned by the attacker, said to be in his 30s. He lived on the ground floor of the building in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar, in which the victim's family also stayed, police said.

The girl, who was raped repeatedly, was rescued when members of her family heard her screams Wednesday evening, police said.
