New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday will decide on whether or not to frame charges against two people arrested in a five-year-old girl's rape and torture. The case sparked public outcry in April after it was learnt that the accused had kept the girl in confinement in the same building where her family lived.

The minor girl was raped several times allegedly by her neighbour who abducted and kept her hostage inside his flat in New Delhi for two days.
