NEW DELHI: An 8-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her neighbour in southeast Delhi’s Badarpur on Wednesday. The 30-year-old accused has been arrested.
After receiving the information about the alleged assault around 3pm, a team from the local police station went to the spot. “The survivor, along with her mother, was sent to AIIMS for medical assistance. According to the mother, Rahul, who lives in their locality, assaulted the girl and fled,” DCP (south east) Esha Pandey said.
According to Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), the mother said she had gone to work, leaving her daughter at home, when Rahul took the girl away and raped her. “There were bite marks all over her body and she was bleeding profusely. The girl has been hospitalised,” a DCW official said.
Four teams were formed at Badarpur police station and raids were conducted. “With the help of technical surveillance, the accused was arrested on Wednesday night from a relative’s house at Baminikhera village in Haryana’s Palwal. The accused, a labourer, is a drug addict,” Pandey added. Rahul, who is originally from Agra, had also threatened the girl not to tell anybody about the incident, police said.
A case under sections 376 (punishment for rape), 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) of IPC and Section 6 of POCSO Act has been registered. DCW has issued a notice to Delhi Police and sought a detailed report, including an FIR copy and an action-taken report.
