New Delhi: Two minor girls, one aged two-and-a-half, and the other aged five, were gang-raped in separate incidents in Delhi, and are presently in a critical state.
In the first case, a two-and-a-half-year-old girl was raped allegedly by two men who abducted her on a motorbike from outside her house in west Delhi’s Nangloi area on Friday. Neighbours later found her lying unconscious at a nearby park. She was bleeding profusely.
The girl’s mother has claimed that her daughter was abducted while she was watching a Ramleela performance near her house.
“My girl was watching a Ramleela when there was a power cut. That is when they kidnapped her,” she said.
The girl has suffered severe damage to her private parts and has bites marks on her body, said Swati Maliwal, Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) who visited her today at the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital.
No arrests have been made in the case so far.
On the same day, a five-year-old was raped allegedly by three men in east Delhi’s Anand Vihar area. The girl was reportedly alone at home when one of the accused, her neighbor, took her to his house and then allegedly raped her along with his friends.
Her neighbours saw her coming out of the accused’s house and informed the police.
“She was crying and her clothes were soaked with blood,” one of them has told police.
All three accused have been arrested.
