Two minor girls raped by Delhi man, handed Rs 5 to keep quiet

The accused 60-year-old Mohammad Jainul, a daily wage labourer, apparently lured the two minor girls, aged 5 and 9, from south Delhi by offering them sweets, says the police.

In yet another case of child sexual abuse that would send chills down your spine, two minor girls were raped in Delhi by a sixty-year-old man, who handed them five rupees each after the heinous act so that they keep quiet about the incident.

The accused 60-year-old Mohammad Jainul, a daily wage labourer, apparently lured the two minor girls, aged 5 and 9, from south Delhi by offering them sweets, says the police.

Two minor girls raped in Delhi

Milind Mahadeo Dumbere, Deputy Commissioner of Police, South Delhi, said that the parents of the girls informed them through a call on the special police helpline number 100. The incident happened on Sunday.

The two minor girls were playing outside their house when Dumbere lured them by offering them chocolates and sweets.

“He took both the girls to his house and assaulted them in front of one another. Before he let them off he warned them not to tell anyone about the assault and handed them over Rs. 5. The two then went home,” Dumbere told The Hindustan Times.

The parents of the two girls are also labourers and were out at work. The poor girls did not open their mouth until the five-year-old couldn't bear the pain due to the sexual assault.

And that's when both girls opened up to their mother, who spotted assault marks on her daughter's private parts and figured that they were assaulted. The girls have identified the rapist.

“ They were then counselled and a case was registered against Jainul. Our team arrested him. He was produced before a court, which sent him to 14-days judicial custody,” added the Deputy Commissioner.
