A five-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 14-year-old boy studying in Class 9 in Noida's Sadarpur area on Tuesday evening.
According to a report in the Hindustan Times, both the accused and the victim are neighbours and know each other well. The incident reportedly occurred on Tuesday evening when the girl had gone to play at the boy's house.
The medical examination has confirmed rape.
"When the girl returned to home she had bloodstains on her clothes and was bleeding," investigating officer Ajay Kumar Singh told Hindustan Times. "She narrated the ordeal to her mother, after which the parents approached police."
A case under Section 376 (rape) of IPC and Section 3/4 of the POCSO (Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences) Act has been registered against the boy.
The accused, whose family was not home at the time of the incident, has confessed to his crime. "The boy will be produced before the court after which he will be sent to a juvenile correction home," the police said.
