Girl raped in Delhi school, sparks protest
New Delhi, Mar 1 : A seven-year-old girl studying in Class II in a New Delhi government school was allegedly raped on Thursday, sparking a rather violent protest outside a Delhi hospital on Friday where the victim is being treated.
The angry mob damaged vehicles and pelted stones on the police, reports said.
The police on the other hand resorted to lathi charge to disperse the protesters.
After Goa, the child rape shocker came from New Delhi with this latest report which said the minor was raped inside the government-run school in the national capital on Thursday.
Media reports said the Class II girl was left badly injured. She was later hospitalized by her parents.
The school is one run by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), reports said.
A guard and two male teachers of the school have been detained for questioning.
Amid growing incidents of sexual assault on women of any age and the fatal gangrape of the Delhi braveheart inside a bus on Dec 16, a shock came when it was known that a small girl was raped on Jan 14 inside the school toilet in Goa's Vasco. The school is run by the Mormugao Port Trust on Jan 14.
However, the most ghastly incident occurred in Bhandara of Maharashta where three minor sister aged six to 11 were raped and then killed. Their bodies were discovered by villagers days after they went missing while the mother said police did not take action to trace the girls.
The Delhi gangrape incident in December last year triggered nationwide outrage against rising cases of rape and brutalization of women in India with people pouring into the streets of New Delhi for days and demanding a change of law and strict punishment of the accused.
