Panaji, Jan 28 (ANI): Goa Police have registered a case against two suspects accused of raping a nine-year-old Russian girl.
The girl was reportedly molested and raped on Tuesday while she was with her mother at Arambol Beach, about 45 kilometres Panaji.
"One case has been registered at the Pernem Police station, where the mother of the victim has lodged a complaint. According to her the girl was bathing in the sea when a person started abusing her. The girl started crying and rushed to her mother, who was on a beach bed," said A B Deshpande, Superintendent of Police, Goa, said on Wednesday.
A government hospital in Panaji confirmed penetration during medical examination of the girl.

The Russian Embassy has expressed concern over the incident and also on previous attacks on Russian women in Goa.
