NEW DELHI: A week after the horrific rape and torture of a four-year-old girl in Delhi, two more cases of minor girls being gang-raped have been reported from the capital. Both the girls have suffered severe injuries and are in critical condition, Indian media reported.
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 profusely bleeding.
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 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, the chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women who visited her today.
“Woke up to 2 incidents of gangrape of a 2.5 year old and 5 year old. Bleeding not stopping for 2.5 year old. On way to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital (sic),” she had posted on Twitter this morning.
No arrests have been made in the case so far.
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.
