Delhi: 6-year-old girl found with severe injuries near public toilet

New Delhi: Another child has been allegedly sexually assaulted in a public toilet in Badarpur in Delhi. A 6-year-old girl, according to the doctors who are now treating her, has suffered injuries to her private parts, which appear to have been inflicted with a sharp object.

The survivor is undergoing treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences trauma centre and is said to be stable now. A passer-by in south Delhi's Badarpur area spotted the girl lying unconscious and informed the police, who took her to AIIMS.

"When the girl was brought to the hospital we noticed that there were marks on her neck, it appears that someone tried to slash her throat with a blade. There were injuries on her private parts too," Dr Viplav said.

She was found in the men's section of the public toilet. The police have detained a security guard near the area and a few others for questioning. "The girl was found in a Sulabh toilet in Badarpur. There were marks on her neck. We will arrest the criminals soon," Additional Commissioner of Police Ajay Chaudhary said.

"Like everyday, she had been there for a bath. People later found her lying inside with injuries," the survivor's uncle said.
