Faridabad: A five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her neighbour in Faridabad, police said today.

The girl’s mother lodged a complaint with police saying that yesterday, while she was busy with her daily routine work, her daughter went to play at their neighbour’s house.

The girl’s father returned home and asked about her whereabouts following which he went to their neighbour’s place where he found his daughter crying at the doorstep, police said.
