It’s been reported by the victim girl’s mother that his daughter’s classmate, i.e. the boy used his finger and a sharpened pencil to carry out the sexual assault on this girl, which resulted in causing injured the girl’s private parts.

A case of rape was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act, told the deputy commissioner of police to the media and journalists. Thus, legal experts also have been consulted on this issue.

The case seems very sensitive as this kind of case was never heard before. Dependra Pathak, Chief Spokesperson, Delhi Police told to the media, “The Indian Penal Code (IPC) provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions. We are examining those provisions even as we are handling the matter with utmost sensitivity.”

The case seems confusing, shocking and complicated. The police are not sure how to proceed with the case and execute the proceedings because the suspected culprit’s age seems very young.

The girl’s mother told that her daughter complained constantly about pain in her lower abdomen right after returning from the school on Friday. The mother initially ignored the matter thinking it must be just “tantrums”.

But on the same night the child started crying and spoke up about what happened. She told her mother that the boy unbuttoned her pants and started assaulting her using his finger. 
The mother quoted in FIR, “She tried pushing him, but could not get away as other children had left and there was no staff around.”

The girl’s pain did not fade away and due to her continuous pains, she was taken to the hospital where a medical report was prepared after her r=treatment was done. And right after that a police case was also registered.

Dr Samir Parikh, the director of Fortis Healthcare’s department of mental health and behavioural sciences told, “We must understand that it is absolutely not possible for a four-year-old to understand sexual behavior. Is there a possibility of a sexual need being fulfilled in his case? Absolutely not”

The mother complained about the matter to a school teacher through text on that same night and kept informing the school authorities but she did not receive much cooperation from the authorities. She also complained that there was neither any teacher nor even any employee in the classroom or the washroom when the incident occurred. 

On the other hand, the school’s lawyer on defense stated that they had an ayah at every washroom inside the school premises. 

But the experts have advised the police and the investigators to handle the matter gently with extreme care as the age of both the suspect and the victim is way too sensitive.
