The girl, who is now in the ICU, underwent extensive surgery
The condition of the six-year-old girl found abandoned and sexually assaulted at Kapashera in South-West Delhi on Sunday night is stable and “she is making good recovery”, according to a senior doctor at Safdarjung Hospital, where she is admitted.
The girl, who was taken to the hospital by Delhi Police on Sunday night and is now in the intensive care unit, underwent extensive surgery on Monday.
Hospital Medical Superintendent B. D. Athani said: “Her condition is stable and she continues to stay under paediatric care. Some of her body parts were damaged extensively during the assault and she had to undergo surgeries to repair the same. Her condition has improved in the past two days, though she is still not taking oral feeds. We are looking at discharging her only if there is a definite improvement in her condition.”
He said her parents are with her.
“She had extensive injuries all over her body when she came in,” added Dr. Athani.
The girl had gone missing from Sector 21 in neighbouring Gurgaon on Sunday and a first information report has been registered at the Kapashera police station.
According to Delhi Police, the girl was spotted by a passerby around 11 p.m. at the Delhi-Haryana border on Sunday, who then informed the police.
“We alerted the neighbouring police stations in the National Capital Region and got to know that a girl had been missing from Gurgaon. Subsequently her family members were contacted,” added a Delhi Police officer.
Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Gurgaon West) Surender Pal Singh said: “We have no information about the case. Neither anybody approached us with a missing complaint nor did we have any communication from Delhi Police about the incident. We are in no way involved in the case.”
