A young innocent girl was the target of two evil men, who tried to burn her alive.
The two men have been arrested after they tried to kill the five-year-old girl by setting her on fire in the village of Ghazipur, India, on Saturday night.
The men allegedly committed the crime because they were angry at Kedar Bind, the father of the girl.
The girl, who was identified as Rani, and her mother, were sleeping when the men came to the house in middle of the night and poured gasoline on her.
Hearing the cries of the girl, her mother and other family members woke up. The assailants managed to escape, but were later captured and arrested.
The girl was taken to a hospital, where she is said to be in critical condition.
