The police on Monday received a complaint from a 12-year-old girl, a resident of Welcome in East Delhi, alleging that her step-father had been sexually assaulting her for the past few weeks. Based on her complaint, the police have registered a case and launched a hunt for the accused.

In another case, a nine-year-old girl was kidnapped in an auto-rickshaw from near her school in Seemapuri. She was taken to Hindon in Ghaziabad, where she was raped and later dumped at Mohan Nagar this past Saturday. Enquiries by the police revealed that the victim’s father, an auto-rickshaw driver, used to pick her up from school everyday.

When he did not turn up, the victim hired an auto-rickshaw, whose driver took her to Hindon and raped her. A Good Samaritan dropped her home, following which she was admitted to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital. The police have registered a case and arrested the driver, Om Prakash (42).

In yet another case, a 10-year-old girl was kidnapped from outside her house in Govindpuri, taken to a nearby jungle and raped by man on Sunday evening.

“We have launched a hunt for the suspect and hope to arrest him soon,” said a police officer.
