The Delhi Police on Monday reportedly detained four men in connection with the gangrape of a four-year-old girl in north Delhi recently.
The girl was found lying in a pool of blood near a railway track in Keshav Puram area of north Delhi at 7 pm on Friday, according to earlier reports.
The four-year-old, who had been injured severely in her intestines and private parts, underwent an emergency surgery in Safdarjung Hospital last week, according to reports.
"We have registered a case under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act," a police official told IANS.
Meanwhile, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal met the child at the hospital.
"Visited the little girl, her condition can't be described. Horrific. Her parents are extremely poor. When will this heinous crime stop in Delhi (sic)," Maliwal tweeted.
"In 2014, only nine accused were convicted in Delhi in crime against women. Can you imagine! Tabhi to Delhi mei kisi ko darr nahi hai (That's why no one is scared in Delhi)," she added.
