Delhi: 12-year-old mentally challenged girl raped by neighbour, accused arrested”

A mentally-challenged minor girl was allegedly raped by a youth and two of his friends filmed the crime in the national capital, said a police officer on Tuesday, adding that all the accused have been arrested. Two weeks ago, he allegedly lured her to his house, where his two friends were already present.

A case under appropriate section of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered.

"We raided their hideouts and arrested them on Monday", Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) Rajneesh Gupta told the Hindustan Times. "The neighbour raped the girl while his friends recorded the act".

The accused further threatened the girl of severe consequences if she revealed about the incident to anyone.

He said the incident took place on Friday and was reported to the police the next day after the family of survivor (12), saw the video clip on their WhatsApp.

The girl's family has also alleged that they are facing pressure from the family of the accused to withdraw the case. "The main accused is a powerful person and his family members have a strong hold in the area", the child's mother told IANS. "They are asking us to withdraw the rape case and leave the locality". The accused had recorded the rape incident and had shared the video with the parents of the victim.

The 15-year-old gang rape victim had walked into the police and handed over the advance money that her parents had taken to stay quiet.

"The girl came with a wad of notes and said it was Rs 3 lakh".

While the mother of the girl has now been arrested, the father is said to be on the run.
