Provincial police chief Abdul Mubeen Izadyar said the rape case unveiled after the child was admitted to the provincial hospital for the treatment.
He said an investigation is underway in connection the incident and two suspects are in custody of the police.

The latest incident involving rape of a child was reported from northern Jawzjan province of Afghanistan earlier in September last year.
Earlier a teenage girl was gang-raped by a group of four men in northern Samangan province of Afghanistan.
The incident took place in Dara-e-Suf district of Samangan province late in the month of April where the girl was initially kidnapped and was repeatedly raped by the men.
