Kejriwal: brutal assault of minor has shaken me to the core

Aug 06, 2020 21:13 IST

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday paid a visit to the minor girl who was sexually assaulted two days at her home in the Paschim Vihar area and is undergoing treatment at the AIIMS. The 12-year-old girl was hit her on face and head with a sharp object on Tuesday evening, police said. A surgery has been conducted on the child, but her condition is stated to be serious. Describing it as a barbaric crime, Kejriwal said he had spoken to the police chief and a hunt was on for the attacker. "I have spoken to the Police Commissioner. Police are trying to nab the accused. The govt will ensure strict punishment for them and will provide Rs 10 lakh to her family members," he said. Before going to the hospital, Kejriwal wrote on Twitter that the savage assault 'had shaken him to the core, adding that 'such predators roaming free cannot be tolerated'.
