Candle, bottle poked into rape victim’s genitals: Doctors (Fourth Lead)

New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) The five-year-old girl, who is undergoing treatment here after she was brutally raped for two days during which a 200 ml bottle and pieces of candle were inserted into her private parts, is said to be in stable condition, doctors said Friday.

“Upon examination, we found a 200 ml bottle and two or three pieces of candle inserted into her private parts. This is the first time that I have seen such barbarism with a five-year-old girl,” R.K. Bansal, medical superintendent, Swami Dayanand Hospital, told reporters.

“Initially, she was really in a bad state but showed some improvement later. She is recovering now. The foreign bodies in her body have been removed, but there was some infection and we were treating her with anti-biotics,” Bansal said.

Giving details about her condition when the girl was first bought to the hospital Wednesday, Bansal said: “There were injuries on her lips and cheeks and bruise marks on her neck, suggesting that attempts were made to strangle her. The blood pressure was way below normal, and she had fever when she was admitted.”

The girl was also operated upon, doctors said.

The traumatised girl, who was shifted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the evening for better treatment, was admitted to the general ward, doctors said.

“She was examined by a team of doctors,” AIIMS spokesperson Y.K. Gupta told IANS.

D.K. Sharma, medical superintendent at AIIMS, said: “She is in general ward and not in ICU (intensive care unit).

“Team of doctors from surgery, paediatrics and gynae are examining her in detail,” Sharma told IANS.

The girl was abducted April 15 and kept hostage for two days without food and water in a flat owned by the attacker, said to be in his 30s. He lived on the ground floor of the building in east Delhi’s Gandhi Nagar, in which the victim’s family also stayed, police said. The accused Manoj Kumar, 25, is at large.

The girl, who was repeatedly raped, was rescued when members of her family heard her screams Wednesday, police said.
