A 5-year-old Pakistani girl was in critical condition Saturday after being kidnapped and brutally raped in the eastern city of Lahore, police said.

The girl was found outside a hospital at around 8 p.m. Friday, said Lahore police Chief Chaudhry Shafiq, a day after she went missing from a low-income neighborhood in the city.

“We suspect that unknown men kidnapped the girl and after raping her threw her outside the hospital,” Shafiq said.

Doctors said the child was raped several times, added Shafiq, and after receiving emergency care was transferred to the intensive care unit of nearby Services Hospital.
