A 36-year-old man has confessed to abducting and raping an 11-month-old baby for almost two hours in a jungle.
The mother of the victim was sleeping in a makeshift shelter at a police housing complex in Delhi India when her 36-year-old neighbour abducted her baby and raped her for almost two hours in a jungle within the area.
The reports revealed that policemen arrived at about 11pm on Friday, September 2, to find the baby unconscious but alive.
The baby was immediately rushed to the intensive care unit at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital.
Opening up on the incident, an official said:
“The girl was bleeding profusely. Doctors at the hospital have said that her condition is serious. The police team was helped by the recovery of the mobile phone to track the location of the accused. We traced him to the labour camp.”
Following his arrest, the suspect confessed to abducting the child. A police officer told Times of India:
“He said he then took her to the bushes beside a drain and raped her for nearly two hours.”
The suspect has been charged with rape and is currently being held at Tihar Jail.
The father of the child told the police:
“I was horrified to see my daughter’s condition. Her clothes were torn and she had nail marks all over the body. The severe injuries might have a lifelong impact on her health.”
