According to the police, the accused, aged 11 and 10 years, as well as the victim lived in the same area in Kapasera near the Delhi border.
NEW DELHI: A 17-year-old girl was gangraped by five men at two different places in Sagarpur in Delhi’s South District. When the girl resisted, the accused thrashed her and chopped her hair. As reportedly two of the five accused were friends of the victim’s brother.
The incident, that took place last week, also brought out the police apathy. When the relatives of the victim went to the police station, instead of lodging a case, the police were busy deciding under which station’s jurisdiction the case would fall.
Finally, the medical examination of the victim was done at the Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital at 8:30 at night on the day of the incident, after which the police was called and it was decided that the case would be registered at the Sagarpur police station. The jurisdiction dispute ended after senior officers intervened in the matter.
The police have arrested three of the accused, while the other two accused are still absconding. Earlier on July 4, two minor boys gang-raped a five-year-old girl in the national capital. According to the police, the accused, aged 11 and 10 years, as well as the victim lived in the same area in Kapasera near the Delhi border.
“The kids were playing in the park on Monday night. The two boys then caught hold of the girl and took turns to rape her. The girl’s mother happened to reach the park and the boys fled,” said a police officer on Thursday.
The police rushed the girl to a hospital where her examination confirmed rape. She was warded in the hospital for a day.
A case under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) has been registered. The accused were apprehended on Tuesday and sent to a juvenile correction home.
On the rising levels of crime in Delhi, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that he has not gone soft on the Centre on the issue of rising crime rate in the national capital, but “attacking or abusing” each other over it is not a solution.
