The two-and-a-half-year-old girl was brought (to the hospital) at 2.30 AM and she was bleeding from her private parts. She was attended to by our doctors. She is now stable and conscious and her bleeding has been brought under control.

The 2 suspects were arrested after investigations.

5-year-old rape

The other incident happened the same night when 3 men gang raped a 5-year-old girl as neighbour took the girl to his place and raped her along with 2 other friends. When neighbours saw her coming from the house of the neighbour soaked with blood, they call the police.

The three accused men have also been arrested.

The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi and Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung have received a lot of criticism from the incidents, and questions are being asked while the government and the LG could not provide adequate security for women after the horrific Nirbhaya gang rape-and-murder case in December 2012.
