New Delhi: A 21-year-old man in Shahdara’s Seemapuri area has been arrested for allegedly raping a seven-year-old girl. The incident took place on Monday night, police said.

In a statement to the police, the victim’s mother alleged that a neighbour raped her daughter. The victim was playing outside her residence at around 10.30 pm on Monday when the accused took her to the bushes near the DLF chowk and raped her, a senior police officer said.

 

The victim was bleeding when she returned home. On being questioned by her mother, she narrated her ordeal. Based on a complaint filed by the victim’s mother, a case was registered at the Seemapuri police station under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, the police said.

Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal tweeted about the incident. She said the accused took the girl to a park, inserted a water pipe into her private parts and then raped her.

However, the police said, according to a lady doctor who examined the victim, her condition was stable and no foreign object was inserted into her private parts. The doctor said the excess bleeding was due to an injury in the minor’s private parts. The victim has been admitted to Guru Teg Bahadur hospital.

 

The accused, a ragpicker, was arrested on Monday itself, the police said. The DCW said it will file an application seeking compensation for the rape survivor. “Already malnourished, the girl has a long struggle ahead. We are going to support her in her legal fight to ensure death penalty to her culprits,” Maliwal tweeted.
