child-rape

In yet another shocking incident of sexual brutality, a 5-year-old child was raped by a man near her home in Wadala in Central Mumbai. Her agony was multiplied manifold when the police wasted precious time debating who should take charge of the case while the child was crying and bleeding.

The rape took place in Antop Hill, around 2 Km away from her house, when the child had gone out to buy chocolate.

The man allegedly approached the child with an offer to buy her chocolates.

Even as he tried to tempt the child with a 10-rupee note, the child refused saying, “I don’t want anything from you.”

Later, at around 10.30 PM, the man was seen walking off with the child in his hands, though only his back could be seen through the CCTV footage, a newspaper said.

A couple of hours later, at around midnight, she was found on a road, crying and bleeding.

Astonishingly, it took the police more than 4 hours to take the child to a hospital. “The residents of the area claim that the massive delay took place because the two police teams, from areas just 10 minutes apart, started arguing over jurisdiction”, said NDTV.

The child was first taken to the Antop Hill police station. After that she was rounded to the Wadala police station. She was again sent to the Antop Hill station, after the police thought that the case should be handled at the area where the rape took place.

According to residents from the area, it was only after they stated that they would take the child to the hospital themselves–that the cops took the child to the Sion hospital at 2.45 AM.

As of now, no action has been taken against the errant cops.

American singer-songwriter-dancer-choreographer Bobby Newberry will organise a ‘Jazz Funk Master Class’ in India in September.

“I have never been to India and it’s a country with such passion, love for dance and arts. I really felt that I should visit India and throw myself into their love and culture,” Newberry said in a statement.

“I want the dancers to grow as artistes and be stronger than they are now. So, for this I have initiated the method of dance workshop. I want the dancers to come in with open heart and mind rather than with any judgement, only then they will learn the real sense of dance.
