Girl forced to drink acid, police baffled by case
NEW DELHI (DHNS): A 16-year-old girl was allegedly force-fed acid by two stalkers in south Delhi’s Kalkaji area on Wednesday. The victim is a class 10 student of Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya in Kalkaji and was on her way home from school when the incident happened. She was later admitted to Safdurjung Hospital in a serious condition.
The police, however, say they cannot yet confirm what exactly has led to the girl’s condition. “We haven’t talked to the girl as she is in the hospital’s ICU. We are corroborating the things that her mother told the doctors. At this stage we can’t deny or confirm the incident,” said a senior police officer.
“No external injuries have been found on the girl. We have procured CCTV footage from the vicinity and are on the lookout for the two accused,” the officer added. According to the complaint, the incident took place on Wednesday around 12.15 pm when the girl had left her school in Kalkaji for her house in Sangam Vihar. Near K-1A, Kalkaji she was approached by two boys who had been stalking her for months.
The girl was then reportedly forced to consume acid after which she lost consciousness. She was taken to her school by a passerby who recognised her from her school uniform.
Her mother was contacted by the school authorities. She then rushed to her school and took her daughter back to their house. Initially, the girl told her mother that she was suffering from stomach ache.
However, when the pain increased her mother took her to a private hospital from where she was referred to Safdarjung Hospital.
