Drunk man assaults kid

Public beats him up, cops charge him with rape

A labourer allegedly molested an infant at south Delhi’s RK Puram on Sunday. He was caught in the act by a student who happened to be around.

The accused, a resident of Jalpaiguri of West Bengal, was thrashed by public before being handed over to police.

Amit Kumar Nimesh, 20, had gone to feed chapatis to cows near Shree Shani Temple in RK Puram sector 2 around 11 am when he noticed the accused sitting beside a car with the one-and-a-half-year-old girl, who had been stripped. 

The accused was allegedly trying to insert a match stick into the girl’s private parts.Nimesh immediately caught the accused and raised an alarm. Soon people gathered and a man claimed himself to be the girl’s father.

Before police could arrive at the spot, Babu was thrashed by the public. Since he was badly drunk, he was unable to escape.

The girl was sent for a medical test, which, according to a police source, showed no serious injuries.

Police have registered a case under section 376 of Indian Penal Code and also included section 6 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSOA). The accused was on Monday produced before a Delhi court which remanded him to 14 days’ judicial custody.
The victim lives with her parents at the labourers’ camp at a construction site.

7-yr-old raped

In another incident on Tuesday, a seven-year-old girl was allegedly raped by an unknown person in west Delhi’s Mayapuri.

A woman called police around 3:30 pm informing that a minor has been raped by a stranger. The girl was immediately sent for a medical examination. Police said they would register an FIR after the arrival of medical test results and once they have questioned the victim’s mother and the complainant.
