Delhi: 4-year-old 'sexually assaulted' by classmate, police file rape case

25 November 2017

According to the statement recorded, the young victim's mother had said initially she had ignored her child's complaints about the pain as she thought that the girl was throwing tantrums.

"The Indian Penal Code (IPC) provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions". A police source said the juvenile will be charged under the Juvenile Justice Act.

The mother of the girl has also alleged inaction by school authorities, she had complained to a schoolteacher via a "text messages" regarding the incident and the school reportedly did not assist the family. "The medical report of the victim will also be looked into", Delhi police officer Dependra Pathak told media. She told her mother that the boy used his finger and a sharpened pencil to assault her sexually.

After the doctors at Rockland Hospital examined the victim and confirmed it to be a case of sexual assault, the parents lodged a complaint at the Dwarka Police Station. "When she returned home, she kept drawing my attention to her pain and injury to her private parts". She added the child says she wants to become strong in the future so she is able to fight off any assaulter."Since I had trained my daughter about the concepts of "right" and "wrong" touch, she knew right from the beginning that whatever was happening to her was not right , As Reported By Hindustan Times".

The child's mother alleges that there was no class teacher or an ayah present in the classroom or the washroom at the time of the assault.

He lost the starting quarterback job to Siemian past year and an injury to his throwing shoulder has kept him out since August. Denver is sliding big time, and playing an angry Raiders bunch that were humiliated in their last outing won't help.

From denying responsibility to blatantly denying the incident, the school's response has changed since the news broke.

Dr Samir Parikh, Fortis Healthcare's department of mental health and behavioural sciences Director speaking on the case said, "We must understand that it is absolutely not possible for a four-year-old to understand sexual behaviour".

"We have no clarity if it took place or not".

The school had apparently told the mother of the assaulted child that the accused boy's section has been changed so it should now be safe for the child to come back to the school. Is there a possibility of a sexual need being fulfilled in his case?
