An eight-month-old baby girl has been raped, allegedly by her cousin, in Delhi, in India.
Police in India say the baby girl is in a critical condition after being raped and admitted to hospital on Sunday. They have arrested the 28-year-old cousin.
Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal, who visited the girl, described her injuries sustained after being raped as “horrific”.
The debate over sexual violence in India has grown after a female student was fatally gang raped in 2012.
The rape of the baby girl happened on Sunday but came to light on Monday after local media reported it.
Ms Maliwal tweeted that the baby had undergone a three-hour operation and that her cries could be heard in the hospital.
