Yet another gruesome incident of the rape of a six-year-old baby girl has come to light in the wake of protests over the death of a seven-year-old rape victim from Bara.
The minor was sexually assaulted by her neighbour at Thoklung-2 of Terhathum district in the eastern Nepal. The incident that took place 11 days ago was made public after the efforts to settle the case at local level failed, according to police.
The victim was taken to hospital only after a week after her health deteriorated, victim’s mother said over telephone. The victim has been admitted to a well-facilitated hospital after providing preliminary check-up at a local health institution.
The victim’s private organ has been torn and is swollen, Dr. Kijan Maharjan said. The victim has been suffering from unstoppable urination, pain in vaginal canal and inability to move.
Police have arrested the accused, Prem Kumar Shrestha, 18, after the victim’s family lodged a case with police. Shrestha, 18, who suddenly disappeared from the village, was found hiding at his sister’s home on Thursday night, said Area Police Office Aathrai.Tweet
