A toddler was allegedly raped by her 35-year-old neighbour in outer Delhi's Alipur area, police said today.

The incident occurred when the accused, Manjeet Pandey, took the two-year-old girl out on the pretext of playing with the toddler. However, he took her to a secluded place and allegedly raped her, police said.

Meanwhile, the girl's family members began looking for her and found her crying inconsolably and bleeding profusely.

Manjeet was caught by locals and roughed up before being handed over to the police.
The toddler was immediately rushed to a hospital in Narela where her condition is critical, police said.

Police has registered a case under various sections of the IPC and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) against Manjeet, who works as a labourer.
