Not looking for second accused in child rape case: Delhi Police

New Delhi, April 21, 2013 (IANS):

Delhi Police Sunday denied searching for a second accused in the abduction and rape of the five-year-old girl in east Delhi.

The denial came after media reports claimed police were searching for a second suspect in the case, and teams had been sent to Bihar in that connection.

In a statement, Delhi Police denied "rumours of arresting a second accused or looking for a second accused in this case".


The five-year-old victim was abducted April 15 and kept hostage in a room in which her attacker lived in Gandhi Nagar, east Delhi. The girl, from whose vaginal orifice doctors recovered pieces of candlesticks and a 200-ml hair oil bottle, is under treatment in Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

The accused, 22-year-old Manoj Kumar, was arrested from Muzaffarpur in Bihar Saturday.
