New Delhi: A four-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her 68-year-old landlord in a south Delhi locality here, police today said.
A senior Delhi Police official said that the incident yesterday took place when the alleged victim was alone at her house in Madangiri and her mother was away for work.
The accused allegedly used different pretexts to get the two minor brothers of the girl to go out of the house and then assaulted her while she was sleeping, he said.
