Three-year-old girl raped in Haryana
The incident happened in Haryana's Hissar district. The three-year-old girl was alone at her house at that time. The assailant stayed in the neighbourhood. He approached the girl when she was all alone at home, say reports.
The father works in a private firm while the mother works as a housemaid, say reports. They are migrants from Bihar. The minor has been arrested and sent to the Juvenile Justice Board.
"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 labourers and were not around when the incident took place,” DSP Hisar Jitender Kumar, told The Indian Express.
The girl and her brother were alone at home
It has also come to light that the girl and her brother who is a couple of years older to her were alone at that time.
"The girl along with her brother, who is only a couple of years older to her, was alone at home yesterday when the accused boy lured her to accompany him to another place and raped her," added the Police.
However, the people in the neighbourhood came to know of the incident and nabbed the boy. The girl's mother took her to the hospital as her daughter was severely injured. After that, she informed the Police.
“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,” said Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to the media.
