The Hush Post: In a shocking incident, a minor boy from Delhi allegedly raped his 8-year-old sister. The incident that occurred earlier this week from Adarsh Nagar locality of Northwest Delhi, was reported on Thursday.
The cops had got information from a local hospital that an 8-year-old girl, who was bleeding profusely from her private parts, had been admitted in the hospital, a report said.
The victim told a counsellor that her elder brother had forced himself on her while their parents were away, the report said.
The parents returned home in the evening to find the girl bleeding and rushed her to a hospital. The accused minor boy was later detained by the police, it was reported.
Swati Maliwal, chief of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) visited the victim girl in the hospital on Wednesday. “She sustained severe injuries and had to undergo a major operation. Currently, she is in a serious condition,” Swati Maliwal was quoted as saying in the report.
“The girl’s parents are daily wage labourers and are very poor,” Swati Maliwal’s statement read.
The DCW said it will support the girl’s treatment and file a case to seek compensation for her. “Crimes against women and girls are on a rise in the country and concerted steps have to be taken by governments against them,” Maliwal was further quoted.
“The commission shall be assisting the survivor in all ways possible to recover from the trauma,” Maliwal reportedly said.
