Sunil Rastogi, the accused, confessed to have molested 500 minors in 12 years

Over a period of 12 years, he had raped and assaulted nearly 500 minors, said Delhi Police after arresting the paedophile.

The Police arrested the serial sex offender from East Delhi’s Ashok Nagar on January 15 while it was probing the case of molestation of two minor girls.

Sunil Rastogi, the accused, confessed to the police that he followed school girls, assaulted them in secluded corners and he did it for sexual satisfaction.

He claimed to have attempted assault on over 2,500 minors.

In 2006, in in Rudrapur, Uttarakhand he was even jailed for six months for sexually assaulting a girl.

A tailor by profession, the 38-year-old told the police that he sexually assaulted 500 minors during a period of 12 years.

Rastogi himself is a father of five children and lived in Kalyanpuri where, in 2004, he allegedly had assaulted a minor girl.

Women’s rights activists on January 16 demanded strict punishment and immediate hanging of the culprit.

While Barkha Shukla former Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief, appreciated the effort made by the police and demanded hanging of the paedophile, another women activist Abha Singh slammed the police and expressed shock over recurrence of such incidents.

“It’s a very shocking and scary situation that a serial rapist rapes and sexually assaults minor girls for more than years. What worrying is that in spite of such a strict law, such cases are happening, that too in the capital. That is a clear intelligence failure of the local police which could not find out that such a serial rapist was living in vicinity. What was surprising was that the police was caught sleeping,” she said.

On January 16, a Delhi court has sent Rastogi to the judicial custody for 14 days.
