New Delhi, India (CNN)After raping the 7-year-old girl with a water hose in New Delhi, the attacker handed her 10 rupees and a piece of chocolate in exchange for her silence, according to her mother. He then left her — a towel around her waist and bleeding — near her home.
The 26-year-old mother scooped up the frightened child and asked her to point out the man, she told CNN on Thursday.
“She was holding her stomach and she was bleeding,” said the mother, whose name is being withheld because rape victims and their families cannot be identified under Indian law. “When I saw her blood, there was no strength left in my body.”
