An 11 month old baby was on Friday allegedly abducted from her mum who was sleeping in a make shift shelter at the police housing complex in Delhi, India and raped by her 36-year-old neighbour for two hours in a nearby jungle, leaving the toddler unconscious. Police officials from the Vikaspuri region arrived on Friday night around 11pm and found the baby unconscious then rushed her to the intensive care unit at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital.
An official said: “The girl was bleeding profusely. Doctors at the hospital have said that her condition is serious. The police team was helped by the recovery of the mobile phone to track the location of the accused. We traced him to the labour camp.”
The suspect when caught by police, reportedly admitted that he abducted the child. Police said to Times of India: “He said he then took her to the bushes beside a drain and raped her for nearly two hours.”
The man has been charged with rape and is being held in Tihar Jail.
The child’s father told police: “I was horrified to see my daughter’s condition. Her clothes were torn and she had nail marks all over the body. The severe injuries might have a lifelong impact on her health.”
