New Delhi: The horrific rape of a five-year-old girl at Gandhi Nagar in east Delhi has once again shaken the national capital.
 
The national outrage witnessed after the December 16 gang-rape of a medical intern in a moving bus here gave a glimmer of hope that this would be the end of violence against women. The protests promised to usher in winds of change. But, alas! It was not to be. Incidents of rapes kept on repeating with ruthless impunity.
 
The recent rape of the five-year-old girl shows that nothing has changed despite the sacrifice of the Delhi brave heart. 
 
The victim was abducted and brutally raped for over two days by a 22-year-old neighbour. She is battling for her life at AIIMS Trauma Centre.
 
The child was reported missing on Monday and was rescued after someone heard her crying on Wednesday. She was later admitted to Swami Dayanand Hospital.
 
The girl's genital area had been mutilated. A 200 ml bottle and pieces of candle were inserted into the private parts of the the girl, causing serious internal injuries and infection.
 
She underwent a surgery at the Swami Dayanand Hospital for removing the external objects from her body. 
 
The victim, whom the doctors claimed was undernourished and weighing 20 kg, was shifted to AIIMS from Swami Dayanand Hospital for treatment. The condition of the girl is said to be "critical". 
 
Doctors attended on her at Swami Dayanand Hospital described the incident as a "barbaric sexual assault". According to them, the injuries on the girl's body suggested that the rapist tried to strangle her and left her to die.
 
The incident clearly gives the message that culprists are not afraid of any law. Ironically, our politicians have also become inefficient and insensitive. After such incidents, they start indulging in blame-game and doing politics over it.
 
Anti-rape law has changed, but nothing has changed on the ground. It seems that law, political system and humanity no more exist in this 'civilised' society.
 
Let's pay our last tribute to the dead police, political system and humanity.

Insensitive police
 
The girl's father alleged that the police had offered the family a bribe of Rs 2,000 to "keep quiet". He also accused the police of being insensitive in their investigation.
 
"They were reluctant to register our complaint (that she was missing) when we approached them the first time. Then the police asked us to be content with the fact she was at least found alive," the father of the girl said.
 
"On Thursday night, a policeman came and asked me to come out. He told me nothing will happen by involving the media and public. He told me that you should take care of the child and be with her. Public would not help you and he also handed me Rs 2,000 and left. He said I should cover my pocket expenses from this money," the grieved father alleged.
 
Girl protester slapped, ACP suspended
 
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) B S Ahlawat on Friday slapped a girl protester at least four times inside Swami Dayanand Hospital where she and others were protesting against the brutal rape of the five-year-old.
 
When the shameless system felt a bit ashamed, Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar suspended the top cop with immediate effect.
 
Kumar termed the slapping incident as "unfortunate". He said, "Let me assure this incident is an aberration. Delhi Police is not known for such high-handedness and we have now taken a prompt and strict action of suspending the ACP."
 
The Delhi government will now hold an inquiry into the issue.
 
Ironically, the Home Minister of the country has not come up with a statement as yet.
