Man Who Raped Seven Year Old Girl With Metal Pipe Arrested
A 21-year-old Indian man has been arrested in connection with inserting a seven-year-old girl with metal pipe leaving her in critical condition.
The girl who is at the New Dehli hospital got lured to a park in Seemapuri in the district of Shahdara where he committed his act.
The chairman of the Delhi Commission for Women, Swati Maliwal, told CNN that the girl is in pain and is sad that a solution seems not be near in sight. Every 13.7 minutes, a minor in India gets raped.
“Cannot describe the pain the little girl was experiencing. Already malnourished, she has a long struggle ahead,” she added. “We are going to support her in her legal fight to ensure death penalty to her culprits. Will file compensation application & shall make all efforts to rehabilitate her.”
She also told CNN, “We are working out her rehabilitation plan, it is very unfortunate that these rape cases are not ending in Delhi. Police resources continue to be extremely low in Delhi”.
The National Crime Records Bureau recorded 39,000 rapes in India in 2016. In April, India enacted a death sentence for minor rape or gang rape cases. However, the law has not implemented in New Delhi.
