The baby is in the Intensive
Care Unit and doctors say that her condition is serious.
An 11-month-old baby was
allegedly raped for two hours by a 36-year-old construction worker in the
locality of Vikaspuri in west Delhi
on Friday night, and then abandoned in some bushes by the culprit.
The Times of India reported
today that the infant was sleeping with her mother, when a construction worker,
who hails from Bihar and routinely comes to Delhi for work, allegedly whisked the child
away at 10:00 pm.
After her mother alerted the
authorities at 11:00 pm, the baby was later found in an unconscious state by
the local police and rushed to DeenDayalUpadhyayHospital, where she
remains in the Intensive Care Unit. "The girl was bleeding profusely. Doctors
at the hospital have said that her condition is serious," a senior
official told TOI.
The police reportedly found
the construction worker's cellphone at the scene of the crime, and tracked him
to a nearby settlement for labourers. On sustained questioning, he reportedly
confessed, TOI reported.
"He said he then took
her to the bushes beside a drain and raped her for nearly two hours," a
police official told TOI. "Fearing that she had died when she became
unconscious, he left the child in the bushes and fled to his shack."
According to NCRB data, 927
cases of child rape were registered in Delhi,
last year, and at least three cases of rape took place every day in the
However statistics are far disturbing. Annually 30000 cases gets reported and many more unreported incidents. 98% of rapers are often related or family friends of victims, making it a more awful affair. Sadly, India is yet to have a nation wide plan to deal with its biggest shame.
