New Delhi: In yet another shocking incident, a six-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by a school van driver in national capital’s Palam Village. If reports are to be believed, the accused committed the crime on Monday while taking the victim to her residence in Palam.

“The accused parked the cab at a deserted place and assaulted the victim. He later threatened her not to disclose the incident to her parents and dropped her some metres away from her residence,” Deputy Commissioners of Police Devender Arya said, while speaking to IANS.

“The victim later informed her mother about the assault following which the police was informed,” the officer added.

A case under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) has been registered. An investigation into the case is underway. The incident comes nearly a month after a class II student was allegedly raped inside a New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) school by an electrician. The incident took place in central Delhi’s Gole Market area.
