Protests have erupted on the streets of the Indian city of New Delhi after reports that a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped and brutally raped and tortured by her neighbor. The girl was found locked in a room two days after she went missing from the yard of her family’s home. Her 22-year-old neighbour Manoj Kumar has since been arrested.
A doctor looking after the young girl said: “Her blood pressure was low. She had fever and our medical examination revealed she had superficial injuries on her lips, cheeks, chest wall, arms, and on her neck. She had some deep bruises as if somebody had tried to throttle or strangulate her.”
