A seven-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by a teenager living in her neighbourhood in south Delhi’s Tigri area, following which a case was registered and the accused apprehended, police said today.

The incident took place on Friday evening when the girl was playing outside her house.

The accused teenager lured the girl and took her to a desolated spot in the area, where he allegedly sodomised her, said police.

“The girl later had to be rushed to AIIMS Trauma Centre and her condition is reported to be stable now,” said a senior police official.

A case was registered under relevant sections of IPC and POCSO Acts at Neb Sarai Police Station in south Delhi and the accused teenager, who is a school dropout, has been apprehended, said the official.

Following the incident, some locals in the area alleged police inaction in connection with the case and claimed that the girl was sexually assaulted by at least three persons.

However, senior police officials ruled out such allegations and maintained that investigation was taken up immediately once the complaint was received and there was only one accused involved in the incident.
