Gurgaon child rape: Police release a sketch of the accused, launch a manhunt

Gurgaon: The police have released a sketch of the accused in the Gurgaon child rape case and have launched a manhunt to nab him. The accused brutally raped a five-year-old girl in the NCR on Saturday, before dumping her near a metro station.

The girl, who was shifted to New Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital on Saturday evening with severe genital injuries, is now stable and out of danger. The incident occurred almost two months after another five-year-old was gangraped by two men in east Delhi.

"My daughter had gone out when a man took her away and raped her," said the father of the girl. Her mother added the child has been operated upon thrice already and has not regained consciousness yet.

The police have also announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for anybody who comes up with any information about the accused. "We are working on it. We will repose faith of people," said Gurgaon DCP (East) Maheshwar Dayal.

Police say at around 12:30 pm on Saturday, the accused lured the minor away with a promise of food and raped near the Bristol Hotel in Gurgaon. The minor's 12-year-old cousin, who was with her, reported her missing to the police.

The police found the girl unconscious near a metro pillar at 2 pm. She was first admitted to a nearby civic hospital and then shifted to Safdarjung Hospital.

The abduction and rape of a minor in NCR has once again proved that providing security to women and children still remains a big concern for the national capital and though the girl may be out of danger, the government and the police clearly have a bigger battle ahead.
