Delhi Child Rape Accused to Appear in Court on Apr 22

The 22-year-old man, arrested for allegedly raping a five-year old girl, will not be produced before court today as police have time till tomorrow to do so.

"The accused Manoj Kumar of Gandhi Nagar rape case will not be produced in the court today," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

Kumar, a labourer in a garment factory in north- east Delhi, was arrested yesterday by a team of Delhi Police and their Bihar counterpart from Muzafarpur district.

A court in Bihar had given a 72-hour transit remand to Delhi Police to bring him to the capital.

The accused was flown to the capital last evening.

In normal circumstances, a person should be produced before a court within 24 hours of the arrest. In this case, police have time till tomorrow to produce him before a court as the transit remand ends tomorrow.

"Police can keep him in custody till tomorrow. They can question him and when produced in court, we can seek his remand. We will ask for his police custody tomorrow in the court," a senior police official said.

The five-year-old girl was brutally raped and assaulted allegedly by Kumar while being held captive and starved for two days in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar. She also contracted infection from foreign objects inserted in her body.
