A three-year-old girl is fighting for her life in a critical condition after she was brutally raped by a local pedophile, according to reports.

A 40-year-old security guard suspected of the attack has been arrested by police after the victim's neighbors hunted him down and "severely beat" him.

The accused is a security guard who worked in the building where the child lived, in Sahyog Vihar area of Dwarka in Delhi, India.

Police rescued the unconscious young girl and rushed her to a nearby hospital where she is undergoing surgery.

According to India Today, the accused was beaten up by an angry mob of locals, following which he was taken to hospital for treatment.

He was later arrested, the officer said, adding a case has been registered against him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act.

Chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women, Swati Maliwal, on Sunday visited the girl in the hospital.


According to the BBC, the incident occurred on Sunday, which was the sixth anniversary of the brutal gang rape of a student on a Delhi bus.

Maliwal said the incident "let down" the bus rape victim, whose attack saw country-wide protests and a tightening of rape laws.

There is still no clarity on the condition of the girl or whether she will survive the attack, which local media have described as "brutal."

Locals in the area found the accused and attacked him after the incident came to light, the Times of India newspaper said.

It also quoted police as saying that the accused was treated for injuries before they arrested him.

The girl's parents, who are daily wage laborers, were away when the incident occurred.

The accused allegedly lured the girl with candy and picked her up from outside her house.

Police have registered a case for rape under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act, which could see the death penalty handed out to the accused.

The incident, which has prompted a fresh wave of anger and outrage in India, comes after a series of high-profile cases against children this year.

In April, the brutal gang-rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Indian-administered Kashmir dominated headlines.

In June, hundreds took to the streets in the central state of Madhya Pradesh over the rape of a seven-year-old girl.
