Two 4-year old girls raped in Delhi
In a crime most hideous, two four-year-old girls were criminally assaulted allegedly by a neighbour in the Capital's Tilak Nagar area on Monday evening. The 22-year-old accused is absconding.
The young victims are cousins and have been admitted to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital where the condition of one of them is stated to be serious.
According to the police, accused Vikram lured four children, three of them girls, to his house from a nearby park promising them chocolates and sweets. He then took them to the first floor of the four-storey building and allegedly assaulted two of them. He also made a vain attempt to criminally assault the third girl, said the police.
Deen Dayal Upadhyay Chief Medical Officer Dhananjaya Kumar said: "Both girls were operated upon and bear serious injuries... . One of them has been bitten on the cheek. The condition of the other girl is still serious, though she recognises her parents and talks passively. We are awaiting the forensic reports to confirm criminal assault."
Alleging inaction on the part of the police, the distraught father said the cops turned up an hour after the first phone call was made. "We made the first call at 9 p.m. but no one turned up. Half-an-hour later one of my neighbours, a retired CRPF constable, called them up again and finally the police arrived at 10 p.m. Had they come on time, the accused would not have escaped," he said.
