Minor girl raped in Delhi's Connaught Place when people were busy in celebrating elections result
A 16-year old minor girl was gang raped reportedly by three to four persons in a parking lot near Connaught Place, on Sunday December 8, when the city was busy in celebrating the victory of Bhartiya Janata Party and Aam Admi Party.

According to the police, the girl a resident of Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh, had run away from her home following some family dispute and boarded a train to Delhi. When she reached New Delhi, she was misguided by a person near by the railway station itself.

From there the accused took her to N-block parking lot near Scindia House, which is just a few minutes away from the Parliament. In the parking lot around 3-4 men took turns to rape her according to the girl, who walked into the Connaught Place police station.

She narrated the entire incident to the police, after which a case under section 376G (gang-rape) and protection of children from sexual offences (POCSO) act has been registered at the Barakhamba Road police station against unknown persons.

Later the police took the girl to RML Hospital for treatment, where the rape was confirmed by the doctors. The police is analysing the CCTV footage to identify the culprits. So far no arrests have been made.

This particular case of gang rape that has taken place just a week before December 16, has reminded public, the unfortunate day last year, when 'Nirbhaya' was brutally gang raped. After putting a brave fight for 13 days she later died in Singapore, where she was sent for better treatment.

The Nirbhaya case had shook the entire nation leading to a huge protest by the public at the Parliament and the India Gate. The issue of women security in national capital has always been an important subject because of the frequent cases of rapes, molestation, eve teasing taking place in the city.
