A five-year-old girl is in a serious condition after being raped and tortured by a man who held her in a locked room in India’s capital for two days, officials said yesterday.

Police say the girl went missing on Monday and was found on Wednesday by neighbours who heard her crying in a room in the same New Delhi building where she lives with her parents. The girl was found alone, but police say the man who lives in the room was arrested in Bihar state, about 620 miles east of New Delhi.
