In a horrifying incident reported from the national capital, an eight-year-old girl was abducted, raped, and killed by a 36-year-old man. The man has been taken into police custody for abducting her, raping her, slitting her throat, and disfiguring her face to destroy the identity.

The man later dumped her body in the Yamuna River.

The minor girl went missing from her central Delhi residence on August 5, and her father registered a police complaint the same day.

The victim’s dead body was sent for post-mortem. The doctors who conducted the post-mortem informed the police that the accused disfigured the victim’s face using a sharp weapon to destroy her identity.

The minor girl was abducted and taken to the jungle area where she was raped.

Forensic team were called into the crime scene to gather fingerprints and they found stab wounds on the child’s throat.

After recovering the minor victim’s dead body, police registered a complaint under several sections of the IPC. The man has also been booked under the POCSO Act.

In another incident coming in from Haryana's Jhajjar, a minor has allegedly been sexually abused at a private school hostel. The Jhajjar police have registered an FIR on the basis of the statement of the child’s parents.

As maintained by the police, the eight-year-old boy was first found by his father in the hostel of the private school on Jhajjar-Gurugram Road where he studied. Though incoherent, the boy managed to convey to his father that he had been sodomised. Following this, he was sent for medical where a sexual assault was confirmed.

Jhajjar DSP Rahul Dev said: “We have registered a case under POCSO Act and Juvenile Justice Act. We've asked for the CCTV footage of the hostel premises from the school authorities.”
