Delhi: A four-year-old allegedly raped his classmate in a reputed school in Dwarka, New Delhi. The mother of the four-year-old girl alleged the boy used his finger and
a sharpened pencil to assault her daughter sexually. Media reports said that the Delhi Police has booked the accused for ‘raping’ his classmate, who is also four-
year-old.
The alleged incident took place last Friday and according to the girl’s mother the four-year-old returned from the school and narrated the ordeal to her. Later, she
told her father about the incident over phone.
The girl’s mother has alleged that the school management did not take the matter seriously and neither acted on the parents’ complaint. As a result, the parents of the
four-year-old girl approached the police and registered a complaint with them.
Deependra Pathak, Delhi Police’s chief spokesperson confirmed the incident and told news channels that a case has been registered under Protection of Children from
Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act after the four-year-old victim’s family approached the local police.
“In such cases, the Indian Penal Code (IPC) provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions. We are taking help from legal experts
examining those provisions even as we are handling the matter with utmost sensitivity,” Pathak said.
In her statement to police, the victim’s mother said that her daughter complained of pain in her lower abdomen after returning from school on Friday. Since she kept
complaining sporadically, the mother ignored it thinking it was “one of her tantrums”.
According to the four-year-old girl, a boy from her class unbuttoned her pants and used his fingers to assault her.
