A 3-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by her neighbour at Philanj village of South Delhi.

The police got information about the incident from Safdarjung hospital, where the girl was taken for treatment last night at around 11 PM, said a senior police officer.

The girl was operated upon and her condition is stated to be out of danger, doctors said. However, she is kept in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the hospital, he said.

The girl belonged to a poor family and her father is a hawker. Her family members suspected a neighbour’s involvement in the rape.

Police have registered a case of rape and investigation has been taken up. Efforts are also being made to arrest the accused.

“A manhunt has been launched and several teams have been formed to arrest the accused who is absconding after the incident,” the officer added.

        Time has come to run rape prosecutions in summary trials presided over by a court appointed retired magistrate or judge. The prosecution must be concluded within a short period of, say 90 days, and sentence carried out within the next 90 days. Unanswered appeals be deemed as denied, and death sentence made mandatory in extreme cases, such as, the rape of a minor, or an elderly person, or gang rape, or rape with ault. That may be the only way to halt these cases. And it must be stopped. Or, else Indian men are going to be looked upon with suion the world over. Mrs S. Kumar, USA

            'Police have registered a case'! Enough!! The victim can happily forget the investigation!!! CM and LG of Delhi are busy in holding upper hand on the other. Whether is the time for them to see all these things? Delhi police have relaxed themselves for a long time. Shock treatment should be given to them to wake up them.
