Congress president Sonia Gandhi today visited AIIMS hospital to enquire about
the minor girl who was raped allegedly by her neighbour in east Delhi.
Gandhi went to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and visited the girl
in her room. She enquired about the victim's treatment and progress from
doctors, and spoke with the parents of the victim.
The rape victim was shifted to AIIMS last evening.
The five-year-old girl was brutally raped and assaulted allegedly by her
neighbour while being held captive and starved for two days. She also contracted
infection from foreign objects inserted in her body.
The horrific incident took place in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar. The girl, who was
missing from April 15 evening, was rescued on April 17 from the ground floor of
the building where her family was staying.
