Five-year-old rape victim stable, say doctors

New Delhi: The five-year-old girl undergoing treatment here after she was brutally raped for two days is responding to treatment, doctors said Saturday, adding that her condition had stabilised.

The traumatised girl, who was shifted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Friday for better treatment, was examined by a team of doctors from surgery, paediatrics and gynaecology departments.

“The girl is faring well, she is responding to treatment. She is now in a stable condition,” D.K. Sharma, medical superintendent at AIIMS told.

AIIMS is likely to issue a medical bulletin later in the day.

The girl was abducted April 15 and kept hostage for two days without food and water in a room in which the attacker 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, was arrested from a village in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district early Saturday, police said.

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