Greater Noida: Man Rapes 3-year-old, Locks Elder Sister in Room

The alleged assault took place when the two children were alone in the house as their grandmother had gone to the market, the Times of India reported.

According to sources, the girls stayed with their grandparents. Their father worked as a labourer in Mahoba district and their mother died a few years ago.

Local residents said the accused had entered the house around 11:30 AM when he found that the children were alone at home. “He is a frequent visitor to their house. He entered the house and tried to assault the elder child first. But she apparently bit his hand. He locked the elder girl in the other room and raped the younger sister,” said Eta I RWA president Deepak Bhati.

Hearing the child’s cries, neighbours started gathering but the accused fled the house before anyone could see him, sources said.

When the grandmother returned from the market, she saw the child bleeding and went to the RWA members who called up police. The girl and her grandmother were made to sit on the floor of the police station. The police allegedly delayed the medical test of the child, sources said.

“The elder girl identifies the youth by face but doesn’t know his name. He was a regular visitor. We will lodge an FIR once we receive a written complaint,” Surajpur SHO Akhilesh Pradhan said.
