A 10-year-old boy from Seelampur in East Delhi, who had been allegedly sexually assaulted by his friends on September 18, has succumbed to his injuries. The boy breathed his last on the morning of October 1 while being treated at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Delhi government's Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital (LNJP).

He had been brought to the hospital on September 22, three days after he had been sexually assaulted, the delay in getting proper and timely medical attention may have cost the boy his life. According to NDTV, the hospital contacted the police, but the parents did not make a statement until September 24, and that too only after receiving counselling. The mother told the police that the boys attacked her son due to the family’s inability to repay a debt. The three accused are also minors said to be in the age group of 10-12 years.

The police then filed a case against the accused under sections 377 (Unnatural offences) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection Of Children Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) had also issued notice to the police. According to the DCW, the mother had filed a complaint saying that the three boys had beaten her son with bricks and rods and also inserted a rod in his private parts.

Two of the three accused boys have been caught so far, while the third is absconding. The two boys who have been apprehended, were presented before the juvenile justice board. But according to Times of India, they were released when their families gave an undertaking.
