12-year-old raped, left to die at residence in Delhi; no arrests made yet
NEW DELHI: A 12-year-old girl was sexually assaulted, brutally injured and left to die in her one room flat in outer Delhi’s Peeragarhi on Tuesday evening. Neighbours spotted the bleeding girl and rushed her to a hospital. She was later referred to AIIMS Trauma Centre, where her condition is now stable. Police found a pair of bloodstained scissors at her house. There have been no arrests so far.
Doctors at AIIMS who operated on the girl said that she was brought in a critical condition. “She has a fracture on her skull and her intestine was ruptured, indicating injury by a foreign object. Two surgeries were carried out on her on Wednesday. She was moved to the ICU and taken off the ventilator on Wednesday night,” said a source at AIIMS.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the survivor was alone at home when she was attacked. The girl lived with her parents and an elder sister who all work at a nearby factory. Around 18 other families of daily wage workers and labourers also reside in the same building. The girl was attacked at least five times.
One of the neighbours who rushed her to the hospital said that the child was spotted on her balcony around 5.30pm. “There were several wounds on her face, back, and stomach,” he said.
“A case of attempt to murder and under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), 2012 has been registered,” said A Koan, DCP (outer).
An officer privy to the investigation said the accused may have found the pair of scissors in the house as the cops found a a sewing machine there too. “The child’s parents usually came home for lunch around 1.30pm and left for work again. So far, CCTV cameras do not show any outsider entering the building. We suspect the involvement of another resident who was aware that the girl was alone at her home,” said the police officer. “We have recorded statements of several residents of the building.”
Why isn't there any kind of child shelter for the poor people where they can leave their child, when out on work. Is safety and assurance only for the rich people who can afford expensive kindergartens..??Why nobody thinks in this direction??
do you know child shelters and nari niketans are famous for sexually abusing girls. It feels like most of the indians are pervert to the core. Rape mentality is embedded in the minds especially in North India. The only way to combat this menace is to fasttrack rape cases and kill the rapists even if it means hanging hundreds of monsters every week
Why not sterlise those bloody people who breed like parasites?
She must be knowing the culprit well.
A nation that cant protect its children is not really a nation at all.
Nation is good for criminals, rapists and murderers. Thanks to NHRC and useless laws.
sad but true
Wait for few months. Now that Ram Mandir work has started, all crimes will be eliminated automatically and no governance would be required. Why else would a sane go nment focus on Ram Mandir since 2014 instead of working towards law and order as well as economics.
Dear Lucifer, why did Jesus Christ sacrifice himself? for your sins, right.?
What kind of people link a child’s rape to a temple dispute. People like you are the reason our country’s politics is so dirty.
Govt must improvise the law part. We cant accept it more. The culprit must hang till death ASAP.
Find him and kill him
Kill? He will get his bail in 30 minutes. That is how our legal system is.
no not kill cut his genitals and do the same thing he did to her and then don't even treat him!
now h an rights activists will day no capital punishment ?
i bet none of these freaking activists ever suffered such a crime that's why they keep barking. Never saw them supporting real victims like nirbhaya and thousands of such girls
A crime in any sense shouldn't be forgiven. The culprits should be handled with toughest laws.
people does this things not because of lack of education it's happening because of lack of common sensethey should be punished very Kamali serial
Hang him publicly
Brutalise the rabid animal till he's dead
Still there will be no strict law for these kind of crimes. Ram ab toh bachao.
Such a heinous crime...is this our society ?Police should catch this barbaric inhuman as soon as possible..Culprit must be given exemplary punishment in a shortest time ..
what exactly do men get by raping huh?is it some sort of evil pleasure that you have hurt someone
Those are not men. They are animals who deserve a merciless death.
