New Delhi: In yet another, and seemingly unending, display of satanic brutality a nine-year-old girl is battling for her life at a hospital here after being sexually assaulted by a 25-year-old man.

According to Hindustan Times, the accused, identified as Gopi Nisha Malha, lured the victim when she was playing with two of her friends at around 6:30 pm on Sunday.

The victim, a standard three student, was then subjected to rape and sodomy, according to HT. The victim’s mother provided a description of Malha at the police station.

“Two hours later, the victim’s mother spotted Malha in the Nawabganj area who fled, leaving the victim crying at the spot,” a police officer said.

The victim was admitted to the ICU of a hospital. Her condition is said to be critical. “Malha was arrested by a police team based on his description as per the girls and the victim’s mother,” said the officer.

The police said they have registered a case under sections 363 (Punishment for kidnapping), 376 (Punishment for rape), 377 (Unnatural offences) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 3/4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 (POCSO) at the Bara Hindu Rao police station against Malha who was sent to judicial custody on Monday.
