NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 12 - In a gruesome crime, a 35-year-old has been arrested for allegedly sexually harassing a five-year-old girl at a public toilet in west Delhi's Naraina area, police said on Monday.
The accused who have been identified as Kailash is 35 years old. He was arrested from a public toilet on Monday after the victim's parents reported the incident to the police.
The heinous crime occurred on February 6 when Kailash spotted the minor girl, 5, at a public toilet and took her to his room, where he sexually assaulted her. After fulfilling his pathetic desire, the accused threatened to kill the girl if she disclosed the incident to her parents.
The victim's parents work as laborers and stay at JJ Camp in Naraina.
"After returning from their work, they saw the girl bleeding. The victim's mother brought medicines from a government dispensary. However, when the victim's health started deteriorating, she took her to Deen Dayal Upadhyay hospital, where the doctors confirmed sexual assault," Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Monika Bhardwaj said.
"Later, the victim's parents reported about the incident to the police, following which the accused was arrested," she added.
