Police arrest 2 teenagers in rape of toddler in India

NEW DELHI: Police say they have arrested two teenagers for allegedly raping a toddler, in the latest incident of sexual violence against a young child in the Indian capital.

Top police officer Dependra Pathak said police had questioned more than 250 residents of the western Delhi neighborhood where the 2 ½-year-old girl was raped and left bleeding in a park on Friday night.

In a separate incident, police on Saturday arrested three men for raping a 5-year-old in an east Delhi suburb.

The rape of the two little girls comes a week after a 4-year-old was raped and brutalized in New Delhi.

The assaults have caused uproar, with Delhi residents accusing the city's government of failure to protect women and girls.
