A five-year-old schoolgirl studying in a private school in east Delhi’s Raghuwarpura near Gandhi Nagar was raped, allegedly by a school staffer on Saturday. Sources said the crime took place within the school premises. The police, however, said that they are yet to ascertain where the girl was raped.
The girl suffered injuries in her private parts because of the sexual assault. She was admitted to a government hospital where she is undergoing treatment. Her condition was stated to be serious.
A police officer said that the crime came to their notice after the hospital authorities called the local police and informed them about the rape with a schoolgirl. A case has been registered and some staffers of the school were being questioned in connection with the crime.
According to the officer, the rape survivor lives with her parents in Raghuwarpura. On Saturday, she returned home from school and complained about pain in her private parts to her mother. When the mother asked her about the reason, she narrated the entire ordeal to her.
Shocked, the woman informed her husband the girl was admitted to the hospital. Prima facie, the suspect is a temporary staffer at the school, said police.
