An elderly man has been accused of luring a 3-year-old girl on the pretext of giving her mangoes before allegedly proceeding to rape her in Delhi, India.

The elderly man, identified only as Durvasa, who reportedly frequently visited the victim's house, allegedly called the 3-year-old girl to his residence, saying that he wanted to give her some mangoes. However, after luring the helpless victim to his home, the accused allegedly sexually assaulted her. When the victim's mother, who couldn't find her child, started looking for her and calling her name, the accused sent the child back home, India Today reported.

The incident came to light when the victim's health started to deteriorate later that night. Following this, the victim's family took her to a hospital for treatment. At the hospital, she was taken for a medical examination and it was revealed that she had been raped, Times Now reported.

Following the gruesome discovery, the victim's family filed a complaint against the accused with the local police officials. Based on their complaint, an FIR (First Information Report) has been filed at Govindpuri Police Station against the accused and the suspect was arrested for rape.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a 15-year-old girl was allegedly repeatedly raped for three years by her brother, after she moved in with him following their parent's death in Ahmedabad, India.

The victim, who hails from Makarba in Ahmedabad, India, filed a rape complaint against her 26-year-old brother, a daily wage laborer, on Wednesday, June 16, 2021. The brother had reportedly threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the recurring assault, Latin Times reported.

"On the night of Jan. 29, 2019, when I was sleeping in my room, my brother barged in and forced himself upon me, and threatened to kill me if I screamed. He then raped me. After raping me, he again threatened to kill me if I spoke about the incident to his wife or anyone else," the girl stated in the complaint, about the first incident.

She alleged that her brother continued to rape her whenever he found her alone or whenever his wife was sleeping.

Following the complaint, the police arrested the accused and charged him with rape and for offenses under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO).
