Delhi lived up to its tag of being a city unsafe for women when in two separate incidents, two minor girls were gang-raped on Friday. In the first case, a five year old girl was allegedly gang raped by three men in Delhi’s Anand Vihar Friday evening. Three suspects have been arrested in the case by the police who happen to be labourers living near the house of the girl. It has been reported that the men were inebriated during the time they committed the crime. The victim has been admitted to GTB hospital.
The second incident took place in Nangloi at around 11 pm, when a two-and-a-half year old girl was abducted from outside her house by two motorcycle borne assailants. The young girl reportedly walked out of the house during a power cut late Friday and was abducted by two men on a motorcycle, eyewitnesses said. She was later found bleeding in a nearby park during early hours of Saturday after which she was rushed to the hospital where she is undergoing treatment for her injuries.
Meanwhile, politicians from different hues took this opportunity to take potshots at each other. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal blamed PM Modi and the LG for Delhi’s lack of security and raised concern over the “repeated” rape of minors in the city. “Am on my way to hospitals to meet rape victims,” he tweeted
Last week, a four-year-old girl was raped by her neighbour at a railway colony near Lawrence Road in northwest Delhi.
