It comes as the latest in a string of rapes on minors in India’s Uttar Pradesh region in recent weeks.
The region, which sits on the edge of the country along the Nepalese border, may introduce increased policing in an attempt to stop the attacks.
Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked police to amp up foot patrols in rural areas in order to protect minors.
The attack comes just a day after an eight-year-old girl was gang raped in the in Singrauli district of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday evening.
Two teenagers, neighbours of the girl, aged 15 and 16, are in custody over the attack.
