A 15-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped and beaten up by two men, including a 63-year-old, at her home in South Delhi’s Chhattarpur earlier this week. Both are her neighbours
The girl lives in a hutment near the Chhattarpur metro station with her mother, who is a daily wage labourer, and her two younger siblings.
On Tuesday, the girl’s mother was out on work and her brother and sister had gone out to play when the two men, Mohd Islam (45) and Ramjani (63), entered her house. The girl alleged the two men gagged her and sexually assaulted her. “They physically assaulted the girl and threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the incident,” a police officer said.
The girl informed her mother about the incident and they approached the police. Medical examination confirmed the sexual assault, police said.
“We registered a case under Sections 376(D)(gang rape) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code and relevant provisions of the Protection of Children Against Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act at the Vasant Kunj (South) police station,” said deputy commissioner of police (south west), Milind Dumbere.
“We raided their (suspects) houses but neither of the two were found. Ramjani was later arrested from Chhattarpur,” said Dumbere. The police are searching for Islam.
Minor sedated, raped
A 12-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 25-year-old man in east Delhi’s Anand Vihar three days ago. The man allegedly sedated the victim and then sexually assaulted her at her neighbour’s residence.
The alleged rapist as well as the woman neighbour, at whose place the crime was committed, have been arrested.
The male accused Babu is a friend of the woman, Reena, and works as a bus conductor for a private bus service.
A senior police officer said that on Thursday the child told her mother about the incident and the matter was reported to the police. The victim told the police that on Tuesday, she was invited by Reema to her house where Babu was already present. “By giving the minor a drink laced with sedatives, they made her unconsciousness. The man then raped the girl and left,” said the officer.
Based on the written complaint and medical examination, a case under Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered. “Babu was arrested on Thursday and the woman on Friday evening,” said the officer.
