Minor Girl Raped, Dumped Near Railway Tracks in Delhi

New Delhi: A 13-year-old girl was allegedly brutally raped in Delhi and dumped near the railway track in the South-East Delhi's Pul Prahladpur area, police said on Wednesday.

There are cut marks on her neck and lower abdomen and has been admitted to AIIMS. The girl is mentally challenged and an orphan.

The girl's condition is stated to be critical.

The girl lives with her maternal aunt at a village near Pul Prahladpur. She went missing on May 17, and a search operation was conducted but she could not be found, a senior police official said.

In the wee hours of May 18, locals spotted the girl lying unconscious near the railway track. She was then rushed to AIIMS where doctors confirmed the sexual assault and a case was registered under relevant IPC sections and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, police said.

The main accused has been arrested.



Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal also met the girl at AIIMS .

"The girl has been brutally raped and we are suspecting it to be a case of gangrape. She is mentally challenged. She has severe injuries on her body.

"She has undergone a major surgery and according to doctors it will take her at least four months to recover. Her condition as of now is critical," Maliwal said.

"Delhi police did not officially informed us of the case. We will send notice to the Delhi police for the same. Both Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Home Minister Rajnath Singh will have to sit together, make a high level committee and discuss steps to curb crime and atrocities against minors and women," she added.
