In yet another incident of rape in Haryana, a three-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 15-year-old boy in Hisar district. The accused has been arrested. “We got information that a three-and-a-half-year-old girl was raped. The case was registered. The accused, her 15-year-old neighbour, was rounded up and produced before Juvenile Justice Board today. Her parents work as laborers and were not around when the incident took place,” said Jitender Kumar, DSP, Hisar.

The girl’s parents are migrant labourers from Bihar. The accused boy was currently residing with his uncle, who also hails from Bihar, police said. “The girl along with her brother, who is only couple of years older to her, were alone at home yesterday when the accused boy lured her to accompany him to another place and raped her,” Hisar Superintendent of Police Manisha Choudhary told PTI.

The accused later allegedly threatened the girl with dire consequence and fled from the spot, she said.

According to the complaint, the girl narrated the incident to her parents when they returned home last evening. The accused juvenile has been booked under relevant provisions of the law, the SP said. The boy was apprehended from his home today and sent to an observation home, the officer added.

The SP said the accused boy was not enrolled in any school and therefore, did not have an educational background.

Talking to media, the victim’s father said, “All I want is my child to survive”. The incident came to light hours after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar expressed disappointment over the rise in number of crimes against women and urged Opposition not to politicise the issue.

“Such incidents are unfortunate. We’ll take strict action and tie up all loose ends. We have made changes in the police administration and transferred a few officers,” Khattar told ANI.

Khattar’s remarks came in the wake of increasing number of rapes being reported from Haryana. A 15-year old Dalit girl from Kurukshetra was allegedly gangraped and murdered with her body mutilated and injuries all over, including her face, neck, lips and chest. In another incident, an 11-year-old Dalit girl was gangraped and murdered in Panipat district. This comes close on the heels of another incident in which a 45-year-old labourer was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl and inserting a wooden stick inside her near Pinjore.

The Congress, meanwhile, hit out at Khattar government asking the chief minister to step down “on moral grounds.” “The law and order situation in Haryana is worrisome. Four to five incidents of rape being reported within a span of just 48 hours is shocking. The crime graph has been going up during the past three years of Khattar government rule,” Congress leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda said.

    A great majority of people in the Hindi-speaking belt are pathetic sub-humans - half-evolved monkeys and chimps with clay brains. These animals can't think, can't reason, can't be civil. They have the characteristics of animals - they just want to h-u-m-p because like animals they cannot discriminate between young and old. These are i-n-c-e-s-t-u-o-u-s creatures too. This is what too much Hindi can do to the brain.

              hmm! there is a problem here! moron lal khattar being single and celibate does not understand the concept of rape. he has the same bland expression on his face (see pic) in spite of the recent spate of rapes in horny haryanaland where testosterone seems to be overflowing out of this state. not sure how they will take this forward at all

                I believe to overcome the Bal Brhamchari issue a re-enactment of the deed is planned.
