Two juveniles apprehended for rape of toddler in Delhi

NEW DELHI: Two juveniles have been apprehended on Sunday in connection with the rape of a two-and-a-half-year-old girl at west Delhi's Nihal Vihar area.

Both the accused, aged around 17 years, live in the same neighbourhood and were known to the girl's family, police said.

On Friday night, they took advantage of powercut in the area and allegedly abducted the girl, after whom at least one of them raped her, a police official said.

However, the accused did not turn out to be the duo whose image was captured in a CCTV footage, in which two persons were seen taking a girl in a motorbike.

"More than 15 teams were formed in this case and around 250 locals were questioned throughout the night, after which the police zeroed in on a few and later the accused juveniles were apprehended," said Joint Commissioner of Police (Southwest) Dependra Pathak.

The persons who were seen taking a child on a motorbike were identified, but they turned out to be locals who were travelling with the daughter of one of the two riders and had nothing to do with the incident, said Pathak.
