Father of the eight-year-old Mandsaur rape victim has demanded death sentence for the accused.

Speaking to ANI, the father said that he wants nothing, except justice for his daughter.

"I do not want any compensation. I just want the accused to be hanged till death," he said.

Meanwhile, Women and Child Development Minister Archana Chitnis said that Rs 5 lakh has been transferred to the victim's father account and the investigation is underway to nab the perpetrators.

"The chief minister has transferred Rs 5 lakh to the victim's father's account. Hope police find the accused very soon so that can be hanged. The state government will take care of her health and education," Chitnis said.

On Saturday, a Special Investigation Team had been constituted to investigate the rape of an eight-year-old girl here, the police said.

The minor girl was abducted from her school in Hafiz Colony and raped at her house on June 26.

Two accused in the case have been arrested.

Superintendent of MY Hospital, where the minor girl is undergoing treatment, told media that the victim is out of danger.
