Now, 5-yr-old girl raped by peon in Delhi school


While the issue of Ryan International school student's death is still raging, a five-year-old girl was raped by a peon inside a classroom in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar area on Saturday. The girl is in a critical condition and police have arrested the accused who was absconding after committing the heinous crime.

The girl told that one Vikas, a peon in the school allegedly raped her inside the school premises.

Vikas had been working in the school for the last three years. Previously he worked as a security guard in the same school, police said. Later, he asked the girl to return to class and warned her of dire consequences if she mentioned the rape to anyone. When the girl returned home crying in the afternoon, her parents found her to be bleeding from her private parts and they took her to the hospital where she remains in critical condition. "The school has not yet taken any action on this matter". She added, "Today it's with my daughter, tomorrow may be with someone else, we want school to be closed".

The student is believed to have described the attacker based on which the police identified the accused. The victim has been admitted to a government hospital in Delhi and is now in a critical condition.

"No investigation has been taking place..." The incident came to light on Saturday evening, when the girl's parents approached police.

Although, the police officials are still investigating into the matter. Cops have registered an FIR under sections of rape (376 IPC) and protection of children from sexual offences (POCSO) Act. Police will again interrogate him at length to ascertain if he had abused other kids in the past as well.
