Paedo monster, 19, rapes 18-month-old baby girl while her parents had popped out the house

A TEENAGER is accused of raping an 18-month-old baby in a savage attack.

The girl's mum had "popped out" briefly when the 19-year-old entered their home in Damoh, Madhya Pradesh on September 19, finding the girl alone.

Cops found the alleged rapist almost 70 miles away in the city of Jabalpur, where he was arrested.

Officers held him under the Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offence Act (POCSO) 2012.

Additional Superintendent of Police Shiv Kumar Singh said: “The incident happened at night when the infant’s mother had gone out to buy vegetables, and the father had not returned home from work.

"When the woman came home, she found the infant in a distressed condition and rushed her to hospital. Reportedly, the child is out of danger."

The distressing claims come amid India's rape crisis, rape and sexual violence has been under the spotlight in India since the 2012 gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh, 23.

The disgusting attack which saw the young student raped and beaten by a gang of six twisted men.

It prompted thousands demanding stricter laws, with prison sentences for rapists doubled to 20 years as well as well as criminalising voyeurism, stalking and trafficking of women.

Indian MPs also voted to lower the age at which a person can be tried as an adult for heinous crimes to 16 from 18.

On Monday, it was reported a tour guide was gang-raped by six men and a woman at a five-star hotel in India, according to police reports.

The rape survivor named six people who attacked her in the hotel near India Gate in Delhi on Friday.

And earlier this month, a teenage girl claimed she was raped by an ambulance driver as she was taken to hospital for coronavirus treatment in India.

The 29-year-old is said to have launched the sex attack on the 19-year-old as she was driven to a treatment centre.

In August, another horrific sex attack was reported after a teenager was raped and murdered before her "mutilated" body was found dumped in a sugarcane field.

The 13-year-old girl's father claims her tongue had been cut and her eyes gouged out – although police have disputed this, according to reports.

The alleged incident took place in Pakaria village close to the Nepal border in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district.

Nearly 34,000 rapes are reported in India each year despite the introduction of tougher laws in recent years.
