A 12-year-old boy ‘was’ raped by four friends who drove a rod through his genitals before hitting him with bricks ‘in a heinous attack’.
The boy was reportedly rushed to hospital in critical condition following the incident in the Seelampur area of Delhi, India last Sunday.
This came to light when a woman told the Delhi Women’s Commission (DCW) that her son had been ‘sexually assaulted’.
His report says the group had inserted the rod into his genitals before he was beaten with bricks and rods.
The boy informed his parents a few days later, who immediately alerted the police, reports The Sun.
Swait Maliwal, head of DCW, tweeted: “In Delhi, even boys are not safe. A 12-year-old boy was brutally raped by four people and left half dead after being beaten with sticks.

She said DCW filed a report and one of the suspects was arrested by police.
But Maliwal said three of the suspects remain at large.
It comes as India’s rape crisis has seen an average of 86 cases recorded every day.
Last month, a mother cut off her boyfriend’s genitals with a kitchen knife to ‘teach him a lesson’ after he attempted to rape her daughter.
The 36-year-old mother came home just in time to catch her 32-year-old beau red-handed on her 14-year-old daughter, in the Mahevaganj area of Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh state, a hundred miles east of New Delhi.

She had been living with him for two years since she separated from her alcoholic husband.
And in June, a mother and her six-year-old daughter were raped by a group of men who offered to take them home to northern India, police said.
The couple accepted the men’s promise to drive them away from the holy site of Piran Kaliyar, a holy place for Muslims and Hindus, on the banks of the Ganges Canal, in Roorkee, Uttarakhand province.
