4-year-old boy booked for raping classmate

A unique case of tampering emerged in a well-known school in Dwarka in Delhi today where a four-year-old student was reportedly sexually exploited by her classmate of the same age. She told the police that her daughter was inappropriately touched by her classmate.

As per the FIR lodged by the victim's mother, she complained to the school authorities about the incident the same night through text messages. "The girl then told her mother about the incident", said a senior police officer.

The parents, after doctors confirmed sexual assault, went to the police to report the incident. The boy allegedly kept hurting her because no one was around at the time.

According to the parents, she narrated the whole incident that took place during the school hours, saying a boy of her class opened her trousers and put his finger inside her private parts.

The police is now in dilemma of how to proceed with the case since the suspect is a 4-year-old minor.

According to media reports, the victim told her parents that a boy in her class unbuttoned her trousers, used a finger and a sharpened pencil to assault her.

Summary: A case has been registered under sections of rape and the POCSO Act, police said, adding that they have started their investigation.

Dependra Pathak, the Delhi Police chief spokesperson, is quoted as telling the Hindustan Times newspaper: "The Indian Penal Code provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions".

"She tried to push him but to no avail as there were no other children in the classroom and there was no staff around", the statement stated. She also informed the school again the next day, but authorities there asked her to come back on Monday with a written complaint. The mother met a counsellor from the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) and registered a case against the school administration.

The mother alleged that there was neither a teacher nor a help present in the classroom or in the washroom when the alleged assault happened.

Dr Samir Parikh, director of the city's Fortis Healthcare's Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences was of the opinion that the assault could not be considered sexual in nature.
