New Delhi: A 14-year-old girl who laboured as domestic assistance in South Delhi’s Greater Kailash 1 area was allegedly raped by a 17-year-old boy and three others, the police asserted on Sunday, putting in all four suspects have been seized into detention.
As per the police, the girl had come across the teenage boy at the location where she worked. The boy, who had befriended her before resigning from the employment around a month ago inquired of her to stop in his new place of work, also in Greater Kailash, where three others were there on Saturday.
The boy then raped her in the servant neighbourhoods of the house, the girl said, with the support of the others – an 18-year-old, a 20-year-old and a 30-year-old.
The police asserted they got the call about the happening on Sunday and have arrested all four accused. They have documented a case and are investigating it.
The Delhi Police in October said it had registered a 28 per cent decline in the number of rape cases this year. As many as 1,241 rape cases were noted till September 30 differed to 1,723 cases in the same period last year, it said.
India documented an average 87 rape cases every day in 2019 and more than 4 lakh cases of crimes against women during the year – a rise of over 7 per cent from 2018 – as per the latest data broadcasted by the National Crime Records Bureau.
Liberties organisations assert the government statistics understate the number of rapes as it is still deemed a taboo to report rape in some portions of India and by virtue of rapes that result in the murder are amounted to something immaculately as murders. Crimes against women are frequently accepted less remarkably, and interrogated by police lacking in sentiment, they assert.
