Shocker: 8-month old baby raped by 27-year old cousin in New Delhi

New Delhi: Another brutal rape has taken place in the capital city of India, New Delhi. An eight month old baby was brutally raped by her own cousin brother, who is 27-years old. The accused, who according to the police is a daily wager, is married man and has two daughters.

The girl is reportedly in a critical condition at a local hospital where she was brought in on Sunday. The chief of the Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal, visted the infant in the hospital and described her situation as horrific.  The incident happened on Sunday but came to light on Monday after local media reported it.

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

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

In another tweet, Maliwal expressed her anguish by asking how can Delhi sleep tonight.

“What to do? How can Delhi sleep today when 8 month baby has been brutally raped in capital? Have we become so insensitive or we have simply accepted this as our fate?” she tweeted. Maliwal also posted a direct appeal to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi that “stricter laws and more police resources” were needed to protect girls in the country.

Recently Haryana saw a wave of brutal rapes and gang rapes.

A 15 year old girl, who was missing in Haryana, was found dead with horrific signs of torture on her body.

The girl’s liver and lungs were ruptured and her private parts have been mutilated, which the doctors confirmed. Moreover, an object had been jammed into her body, the doctors added.

In another incident, two minor Dalit girls were allegedly raped and killed in separate incidents in Haryana, barely a month after a similar case involving a six-year-old girl had shook the state.

In another case, a 3-year-old victim was raped by a 15-year-old minor who stayed in the neighbouring house. The crime took place when the girl’s parents had gone out to work. The girl’s father works in a private firm while her mother worked as a maid.
