While his wife was on the terrace for some work, the accused raped the girl in presence of his two children inside his one-room accommodation, a senior police official said. After the girl returned home, her mother found her bleeding from the private parts and took her to a hospital where it was found that she had been sexually assaulted, he said.

Subsequently, the police were informed about the incident. A case under section 6 (aggravated penetrative sexual assault, punishable with a maximum term of life imprisonment), was registered against the accused.

The girl's mother is a divorcee and stays at her parental home in an outer Delhi colony. The girl's maternal grandfather works as a construction labourer while her mother is a homemaker, said the official.

Delhi Commission For Women chief Swati Maliwal tweeted that she was going to meet the victim at the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital where she is admitted.
