When the girl did not return home till late, worried family members raised an alarm and searched the neighbourhood. She was found lying in a bush outside the village in the early hours of Thursday.
The girl was taken to a medical facility where her condition is said to be serious but stable.
The incident came after a marathon meeting of senior police and Home Department officials, chaired by Adityanath, who pitched for rape with minors will be punishable by death.
