Six-year-old raped in Jaipur
JAIPUR: A six-year-old child was raped when she was out to play in a neighbourhood at Shekawati Nagar, Sikar Road on Sunday evening. The child was admitted to Kanwatia government hospital in Shastri Nagar. No arrest has been made so far.
Infuriated by the incident, local residents staged a protest march in front of Vishwakarma police station on Monday morning and blocked the Sikar Road demanding the arrest of the culprit. They also forced many shopkeepers to shut their shops.
The incident took place when the child along with her friend Nitu (7) went out to play in a nearby temple in the afternoon. "A person came there and gave them ten rupees. He asked them to come along and took them to a nearby deserted plot of land. While Nitu, sensing that something was wrong, escaped from there, her friend became the victim," said Murilpura SHO Bhupendra Singh Shekhawat.
Meanwhile, Nitu ran to her house and informed her mother. When her mother came out of the house to search for the girl, she found her coming towards the house crying, police said.
"There were some brushes on her body. The girl was in a state of shock and it took her half an hour to tell us about what had happened. I went to the place where the incident took place but could not find anyone," said Nitu's mother.
Her parents, who work as daily wagers, hails from Nainawa in Bundi district. "We left home at 8.30 in the morning as usual. As soon as my wife received a call and was informed about the incident, we both rushed from our work. My daughter is still in a state of shock and is unable to tell what exactly happened," said the child's Madan Lal Bairwa.
"The medical examination has been done. The injuries are not very serious as the miscreant could not succeed in his act fully," the SHO said adding that a case under Section 376 of IPC (rape) has been registered. "The culprit was young and had a fair complexion. Probably, he was under the influence of alcohol, so we are questioning liquor shopkeepers for some clue if he bought liquor from any shop in the locality," said SHO.
Though there was a large crowd at the temple, the police so far, could not find an eye-witness who could have seen the culprit. "A separate team has been formed to investigate into the matter and persons with criminal record in the area are being interrogated," said a police official.
