Delhi, July 27: Yet again a shameful ordeal was witnessed in the national capital, where a 4-year-old became the victim of dirty deeds of her school van driver.
The girl’s parents hired a van for just a month ago for taking her girl child to the school. The girl was the last one to be dropped home and taking it as an opportunity, the 26-year-old van driver forced himself on the girl and sexually assaulted her on Tuesday.
Van driver Pawan Kumar later dropped her home and also threatened her not to reveal the incident to anybody.
But the 4-year-old told the horrifying ordeal to her mother, who noticed her bleeding from her private parts. Meanwhile, the victim is undergoing treatment at Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital.
The hospital authorities informed police and the case was registered after her family filed a complaint. The accused was arrested from outer Delhi’s Baba Haridas Nagar late Tuesday night.
Taking a serious note on the incident, DCW chief Swati Maliwal visited the girl at the hospital and called for the formation of a high-level committee to look into the case.
