Kejriwal, who is on his way to meet the families of the two victims, tweeted: “Repeated rape of minors is shameful and worrying. Delhi police has completely failed to provide safety. What are PM and his LG doing?”

“I am on my way to hospitals to meet rape victims,” he added.

It was reported on Saturday that two girls – one aged two-and-half years and the other five – were gang-raped in the national capital.

In the first case, the two-and-half-year-old girl was allegedly abducted from near a ‘Ramlila’ event outside her home in west Delhi’s Nangloi area on Friday by two men on a motorcycle. She was allegedly gang-raped and dumped in the area with severe injuries.

In the second case, the five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two men known to her family in Anand Vihar area of east Delhi. The men, reportedly inebriated at the time, dumped her near her home after the assault.

A week earlier, a four-year-old girl was raped and tortured in Delhi.

  1. A person who projected himself the savior of Delhi now blames PM and The Governor for the shameful and inhuman Rape cases in his domain. If he can’t see the welfare of Delhi people, who has voted him overwhelmingly should resign.

    • Sir, the New Delhi police is under the control of the Central Government, even though the AAP asked the Central Government to hand over the Delhi police force to the New Delhi administration; that is the reason Mr. Kejriwal is blaming the Central Government..

    • Ex-Sergeant George A. Borromeo,

      Yes, I agree that Arvind Kejriwal is not a saint, but compared with the Congress and BJP Chief Ministers Delhi had, he is any day better. Kindly speak to knowledgeable people in Delhi, they will tell you. Considering the non-cooperative Prime Minister and his Government and the Lieutenant Governor, by virtue of his position, having to dance to the Prime Minister’s numbers and tunes, he has kept some of the promise. Sheila Dixit, whon pose to be like Mother Teresa, was the worst.

      Yes, he was wrong in not taking prompt action against Somnath Bharati and Jitender Tomar and ended with a lot of bacon on his face.

  2. Delhi under the great rulership of the BJP would be turning as the international capital of child rape based on the repeated reports of children’s rape.

  3. Kejriwal questions Modi, Jung over minors’ rape in Delhi.

    Delhi police is under the direct control and supervision of Modi. But rapes occur with impunity.

    If such things happen in Congress ruled states in India, RSS and BJP immediately pounce up on and demand that the concerned chief ministers and home ministers should immediately resign. But it does not apply to Modi and RSS. For, the king can do no wrong!

    In India, we now have the rule by Hindu King Modi under Raj Guru RSS!!!

    NO DEMOCRACY.

  4. Rape is a national issue. Should not be politised. Everyone in India has responsibility. We should all fight against rape rather than criticise a minister or prime minister.
