New Delhi: A four-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her neighbour, who attempted to kill her in east Delhi’s Kalyanpuri, police said on Monday.
The minor girl is now admitted in a medical and her condition is serious.
The 26-year-old blamed has been nabbed.
The girl lives with her parents, both workers at a private enterprise, and grandmother on the second floor of a building at Kalyanpuri in which the accused too is a co-tenant, police said.
The incident took place on Saturday afternoon when the girl was sleeping beside her grandmother and the accused whisked her away to his room.
When he allegedly forced himself upon her, the girl screamed following which the accused gagged her.
Failing to manage the situation, he then tried to strangulate her, police said.
The girl fell unconscious and the accused assumed that she was dead.
He first decided to dump her outside the building but there were too many people outside. He changed his plans and went to the girl’s house once again to drop her there and secretly return to his own room.
