The Delhi Police registered a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against the boy after the girl's mother lodged a complaint.

"The Indian Penal Code provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions".

The girl was given counseling by the Delhi Commission for Women, as she was traumatized following the incident, the mother said. The boy opened her trousers in the classroom and used his finger to assault her, the statement said.

According to the victim's mother, she came to know about the incident after her daughter returned from school and narrated what happened to her at night while writhing in pain because of "some injuries she had sustained in her private parts".

The victim's mother in her statement said that she had complained about the alleged assault to the schoolteacher through a text message that night. "She says she wants to eat a lot of food so that she can grow strong and beat up anyone who tries to hurt her in the future", the mother said.The girl, who is on way to physical recovery, has not been opening up with outsiders, the mother added.

North Koreans critical of United States terror list decision
North Korea joins Iran, Sudan, and Syria - the only countries designated by the U.S.as state sponsors of terrorism. The spokesperson noted that their actions included expulsion of North Korean workers and diplomats.


The mother of the victim is demanding action against school for dereliction of duties but no case of criminal negligence has been registered against the school so far. The girl was then taken to a hospital where doctors confirmed the sexual assault. She also approached the school authorities, but instead of cooperating they asked her to give a written complaint about the incident on Monday. "I have taught my daughter to understand touch, and that's why she could tell me all that", the mother said. He later sexually assaulted her even though she tried to push him away.

She claims that she was probably assaulted twice, once in the classroom and next in the washroom.

While, NDTV reported that the school has said that it was "impossible" that 4-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by another classmate of the same age, their lawyer had earlier denied charges of negligence.

Experts advised investigators to handle the case with sensitivity. "Absolutely not", Samir Parikh, director, department of mental health and behavioural sciences, Fortis Healthcare told Hindustan Times.
