Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal today visited the 13-year-old mentally challenged girl at AIIMS, who was allegedly raped brutally and dumped near a railway track in Pul Prahladpur area of Delhi. The girl, who is an orphan and suffers from down’s syndrome, continues to be in a critical state, the police said.
After meeting the girl, CM Kejriwal raised the issue of full statehood to Delhi. “Delhi is not a full state as a result of which such problems are coming up repeatedly. Every crime incident reminds that somehow law and order should be under democratic control so that the law enforcement agencies and public could work together,” Arvind Kejriwal was quoted.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi also met the girl’s family at AIIMS.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission of Women has issued a notice to the area police seeking to know why the DCW was not informed about the rape of the minor.
The girl who lives with her aunt and uncle went missing on 17 May after which a complaint was lodged with the police. She was later found near the railway tracks in an unconscious state with marks of serious injury on her neck, abdomen and private parts. The accused has not yet been arrested.
