A three-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a neighbour at her home in southwest Delhi on Sunday, police said.
The incident took place on December 16, the very day when six years ago, Nirbhaya was gang-raped in a moving bus and subsequently she died.
The minor was allegedly raped by a man who works as a guard. The accused lives in the ground floor of the same building where the child lives. The girl’s parents were out on work when the incident took place, a senior police officer said.
After being informed about the incident, police reached the spot and rushed the unconscious girl to a hospital.
As people came to know about the incident, the 40-year-old man was beaten up by the people, following which he was taken to hospital for treatment. Later he was arrested. A case has been lodged against him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act.
The girl is undergoing treatment and according to doctors, she is stable. Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal tweeted, “Today a 3-year-old girl has been brutally raped in… Delhi.
