A 6-year-old girl was allegedly kidnapped on Monday and gangraped at Jind district in Haryana. While the medical examination conducted by the civil hospital did not show signs of rape, a private clinic has indicated that there was a possibility that she has been sexually assaulted.
The girl was allegedly kidnapped by three unidentified persons from near Ramlila ground. The police were informed and after about an hour, the child was found near Devi Lal chowk — 3 km from where she was kidnapped.
According to the police, after being found, the child was immediately taken to the Jind Civil Hospital for medical examination. "The child was absolutely fine and there was no indication of any kind of sexual assault on her. The medical test was conducted in presence of the child's parents, after which they took her home. However, this morning, they are saying that the child had developed some complications and complained of pain," said a Jind district police spokesperson.
He added: "She was taken to a private clinic, where the doctor indicated that there was a possibility that she has been sexually assaulted. The girl's family demanded that a thorough medical examination be conducted. Following this, a medical board of three doctors has been constituted and it will submit its report by tomorrow morning. The girl has returned home."
The family of the victim has claimed that while doctors at the civil hospital deliberately did not point out rape, the private hospital doctor, after examining the girl, had told them that there was an attempt to sexually assault the girl. The victim's parents even told mediapersons that the child received five stitches, indicating that she was raped.
When asked, the police spokesperson said: "If the child has received stitches, there could be two possibilities. Either the civil hospital doctor deliberately did not point out sexual assault or there was some other incident, which took place today morning. The district police is inquiring into it and will come out with the facts tomorrow. If the civil hospital doctor has committed some wrong, the doctor will face the music."
