The five-year-old girl,who was raped allegedly by her neighbour after holding her captive for four days,was shifted to AIIMS from a municipal hospital this evening.

AIIMS spokesperson Dr Y K Gupta said the girl was brought to the hospital at 6.30 pm. “A team of doctors,including gynaecologists and a paediatric surgeon,are examining the girl. Tests will be conducted to evaluate her condition,” he said.

A doctor at the Swami Dayanand Hospital said the girl was recovering well. “The foreign bodies in her body has been removed. But there is some infection and we treated her with antibiotics,” he said.

“We didn’t want her to go to AIIMS. We are capable of treating her. The family also wanted her to stay here. When they were repeatedly asked they said if you want to shift her,shift her to AIIMS,” he claimed.

Scores of protesters gathered outside AIIMS and Swami Dayanand Hospital and demanded justice for the victim.
