Speaking up about sexual violence
A Delhi Minor gangraped
“They took her to an isolated place in a lane behind Scindia House and took turns to rape her. They threatened her with dire consequences if she told anybody about the crime before fleeing from the crime spot,” the officer said, quoting the girl’s statement.
The girl was produced before a child welfare committee where her statement was recorded. She initially claimed that she had been gang-raped at the New Delhi Railway station by four men. Later, she alleged four to five men took turns to rape her in the lane behind the Scindia House.
“She has not been able to identify the place where the crime took place. She is disoriented and incoherent. It would be wrong to say she is mentally unstable. During a check-up, the doctors did not find any external injury mark on her body,” the officer said.
A police team has been sent to her native place to inform her parents and bring them to Delhi for further action in the case.
The incident has come to light a few days before December 16, when a paramedical student was gang-raped on a moving bus last year, sparking nationwide protests. She had died at a Singapore hospital, after battling for her life for 13 days.
