An Eighteen- months- old baby was raped by her father’s friend who was asked to babysit as the parents were gone for work.
The cruel incident was known to the world when her mother came home from work and noticed blood stains in the baby’s private parts and clothes. They then alerted the local police and lodged a complaint, based on which the suspect was nabbed from the same locality.
Chinmoy Biswal, additional DCP (south), said the 21-year-old suspect was thrashed by locals before police took him away. “The accused has said he did not run away after the crime as he regretted his mistake. We don’t know if he is saying the truth,” said Biswal.
The baby was admitted to Safdarjung hospital and is likely to be discharged today “She was admitted with cuts and bruises and blood clot. However, she did not have any major injury and did not need any surgical intervention,” said Dr. Rajendra Sharma, medical superintendent of Safdarjung hospital.
