“A six-year-old innocent girl was raped by a predator in Mayur Vihar area. Our team is present with the girl since yesterday. The police have now arrested the accused. For how long will minor girls continue to be victims of brutality? Why is there no discussion on women’s safety in the country?” Maliwal said in a tweet in Hindi.
The Mayur Vihar incident took place days after a Dalit girl was allegedly raped and killed in southwest Delhi’s Old Nangal area.
The girl had died under suspicious circumstances on August 1 even as her parents alleged that she was raped and forcibly cremated by a crematorium’s priest.
