An 18-year-old man was arrested for allegedly raping a five-year-old girl in Sector 56 on Monday.

According to the police, the suspect was caught by the mother of the minor when he was with the child and was later arrested from the spot.

The police said the suspect, Chaman, worked for the minor girl’s father, a small-time construction contractor, who had also helped him settle in the city. The suspect and the girl were neighbours. The police added that the girl received medical aid and will be counselled by members of the child welfare committee on Tuesday.

According to the police, they conduct a psychological test of the suspect to know if he has committed similar crimes in the past—a practice to be adopted henceforth by investigators in cases involving children.

In her complaint to the police, the mother of the minor stated that Chaman, a construction worker from Bihar, moved to her neighbourhood a few months ago with his family. Soon, he became acquainted with the girl’s family and frequently visited their house and played with the children.

On Monday, the suspect allegedly went to the girl’s house when her brother was playing outside, and raped her when she was alone, the complainant said. The family had left home around 11am, the police said, adding that the mother had taken her youngest daughter, aged one-and-a-half years, along with her, before the girl and her elder brother had returned from school in the afternoon.

The police said when the mother returned home and tried to open the door, she found it to be locked from the inside. “She heard her daughter crying. Within minutes, Chaman opened the door and the mother saw her daughter lying on the bed in a pool of blood. She raised an alarm and the neighbours caught hold of the suspect and informed the police,” Shamsher Singh, assistant commissioner of police (crime), said.

An FIR was registered under Section 6 (aggravated penetrative sexual assault) of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act at Sector 56 police station on Monday afternoon.

“The suspect will undergo a series of psychological tests to know if he has been involved in any other rape case. It is important to know the psychological state of the suspect. The girl’s medical examination was done and her mother’s statement has been recorded before a magistrate,” the ACP added.
