In separate incidents in the capital, two juveniles were apprehended for trying to rape two minors. In the first incident, a 16-year-old boy was apprehended for allegedly attempting to rape a two-year-old girl in East Delhi's Mayur Vihar area Sunday night. The girl has bite marks on her body and cheeks. Her condition is said to be critical.
Police said the juvenile, who was in an inebriated state, saw her playing outside her house around 8 pm on Sunday.
The juvenile, police said, took her to a park near Mayur Vihar police station and attempted to rape her. When she began screaming, the juvenile panicked and fled, leaving her in the park, police said.
The girl's parents, who had begun looking for her in the neighbourhood, reached the park where they found her in an unconscious state.
Police were informed and the victim was taken to Lal Bahadur Shastri hospital, where she was referred to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
Police said the girl has injuries all over her body.
The juvenile was produced before the Juvenile Justice Board on Monday and sent to an observation home. Angry residents protested outside Mayur Vihar police station on Monday evening.
In another incident, a 17-year-old boy was apprehended for allegedly attempting to rape a five-year-old girl in Outer Delhi.
The landlord, police said, has rented out four rooms in his building, one of which is occupied by the girl and her parents. The incident, police said, was reported on Sunday evening, when the boy, who is the landlord's son, tried to rape her.
