Mumbai shocker: 9-yr-old girl raped by four minors
Mumbai: Four minor orphans have been arrested
for allegedly raping their nine-year-old schoolmate at the
premises of a shelter attached with the educational institute
in suburban Bandra, police said today.
The victim is a student of Class I at St Catherine of Siena school, which also has a home for destitute children
attached in which over 300 minor boys and girls live
"The boys, in Class III, IV and V, have confessed to have
raped the girl following which they were arrested on Tuesday,"
said Samad Sheikh, Senior Inspector at Bandra Police Station.
According to police, the crime came to light on Tuesday
when the authorities of the shelter and school held an
interactive session with the inmates.
"During the session, every inmate was asked about his or
her problems. This was when the victim told the authorities
that she had been sexually abused by the four boys -- two of
them are aged 12 years, one 9 and other of 10 -- in the
shelter repeatedly since March," Sheikh said.
The shelter authorities had called in a gynaecologist for
counselling when the victim explained how the boys abused her
"Subsequently, this was brought to our notice on Tuesday
when the boys were held and during the interrogation, the
accused confessed to have raped the girl," Sheikh said.
The victim and the accused were taken to Nagpada Police
Hospital for medical tests where the boys also told doctors
there they had raped the victim, Shaikh said, adding that
further probe was on.
