India: Eight-Month-Old Baby Girl Raped in Delhi

NEW DELHI: A 28-year-old man has been arrested for raping an eight-month-old baby girl in the Indian capital New Delhi.

The culprit is a daily wage worker and cousin of the baby girl.

The incident came to light on Monday after local media reported it.

The baby’s father told media that they had left their child at home, just to find the infant in bloodied condition.

The incident has attracted a public outcry.

Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal told media that she visited the baby girl in hospital on Monday night.

Swati said the baby’s injuries are “horrific”.

Maliwal tweeted that the girl had to undergo a three-hour operation.

“Her heart-rending cries could be heard in the intensive-care unit of the hospital. She has horrific injuries to her internal organs,” she tweeted.

She posted another tweet expressing her anguish.

The government has introduced anti-rape laws including the death penalty for offenders amid alarmingly increasing reports.

However, the move has failed to halt brutal sexual attacks against women and children continue to be reported across the country.
