NEW DELHI - A seven-year-old girl was raped and murdered in a village in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India, police said according to a report.

The United News of India said the girl had been abducted and attacked by a youth in the village of Harpur, in the state's Sonebhadra district, late Thursday and that police had detained the suspect.

The rape-murder occurred as five men are standing trial for the gang-rape of a 23-year-old student in New Delhi on a private bus as she tried to return home from the cinema with her boyfriend.

The victim died in a Singapore hospital 13 days after the attack, which triggered mass protests across India over the treatment of women and the rising incidence of sex crimes.
