Four more women including a minor raped in Delhi


On the day the country was shocked by the news of twin gangrapes of two children including one toddler, four more incidents of rapes were reported from across Delhi.

A 25 year old woman was gangraped in Delhi’s Bawana police station area, while a 38 year old woman was raped in Rohini.

When contacted, an official at Bawana PS told that three people had been arrested in connection with this rape.

In Sultanpuri police station area, a 15 year old girl was reported to be brutalised, while another 18 year old girl was raped in Samaipur Badli police station area.

A police official at Samaipur Badli police station told that they had arrested one person.

On Saturday, two girls aged 5 and 2 were gangraped in the capital. Police on Sunday said that they had arrested two suspects- both juveniles- in connection with the gangrape of 2 year old toddler.

The recent increase in the number of crimes against women and female children has reignited the debate on the control over Delhi police. The capital’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, is likely to meet the Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung, later today to discuss the law and order.

Kejriwal on Saturday asked PM Modi to hand over the control of Delhi police to the elected government at least for a year.

Delhi, in recent years has acquired the status of being the rape capital of India. According to the National Crime Record Bureau data, Delhi, where the police is under the control of the central government, it registered the most number of rapes in 2014. Total number of rapes reported here was 2096 while the number of sexual offences committed under the IPS was 7849 in 2014.
