In an extremely shocking case in Delhi's Dwarka area, a four-year-old boy has been booked for sexually assaulting his classmate with a pencil inside the classroom of a reputed school in the city.
The victim complained of pain on her private parts after coming home from school. According to press reports, the girl said the boy unbuttoned her trousers and used a finger and a sharpened pencil to assault her and allegedly kept hurting her as no one was around at the time. "I was told to send a written complaint on Monday morning and meet the parents (of the boy), the principal and the teachers (sic)", said mother, in her complaint.
According the deputy commissioner of police, legal experts were consulted "since an offence was made out and there was a victim", and a case of rape under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered. "We are examining those provisions even as we are handling the matter with utmost sensitivity", Dependra Pathak, Delhi Police's chief spokesperson, told the Hindustan Times. When the pain aggravated the next day and the girl did not stop crying, the mother got anxious. The child narrated the incident to her mother on Friday.
