5 YEAR OLD GIRL RAPED IN NEW DELHI – People of New Delhi are outraged once again as reports break that a 5 year old girl was abducted by a neighour, held for 4 days and brutally raped repeatedly.
The 5 year old girl is seen above and below being transported from Swami Dayanand hospital in Dehli to All India Institute of Medical Sciences in order to get better treatment for the horrific internal injuries suffered at the hands of her rapist.
The girl was reported to have been kidnapped by a neighbour as she played outside. Doctors were horrified to find ‘foreign objects’ inside the girls’ genitals, such as pieces of broken candle and a 200ml bottle.
The girl was found by neighbours after hearing her screams. When she was found she was extremely traumatized with injuries around her neck after the rapist tried to strangle her to death.
Doctors who examined the child said that this was one of the worst cases of rape and child sex abuse they had ever seen and that the girl is now fighting for her life in the hospital. According to doctors the next 48 hours will be critical in her survival.
In less than one month this is the third time a minor has been raped in India’s capital. A few days ago a 10 year old girl was raped on a bus by the driver; again he was a neighbour of the girl and persuaded her to stay on the bus with him.
Previous to that incident yet another 10 year old girl was raped, again by a neighbour. While the rape was horrific in itself the parents of the girl were subjected to ridicule from the Police who then locked the girl in cell as punishment for the parents reporting the rape.
Once again people are taking to the streets and demonstrating. They are demanding that the Government take action and that the Police provide better care for victims of rape.
The mother of the 5 year old girl announced to the press that Police Officers turned up at her house and offered to pay her 2,000 rupees (£25) to keep quiet about the rape and that the money could be used to help pay for the medical bills; an allegation that the Police vehemently deny.
The man accused has been indentified and the Police have said that an arrest would take place very soon.
With the escalating number of rapes; especially rape of young children, New Delhi has been given the unenviable title as Rape Capital of the World.
