A 12-year-old boy “was raped by four friends who put a rod in his genitals before hitting him with stones” in a horrific attack.
The boy was reportedly taken to hospital in critical condition after the incident last Sunday in the Seelampur district of Delhi, India.
It came to light when a woman told the Delhi Commission of Women (DCW) that her son had been “sexually assaulted.”
According to its report, the group had inserted the rod into his genitals before being beaten with stones and rods.
Days later, the boy informed his parents, who immediately alerted the police, The sun reports.
Swait Maliwal, head of the 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 the DCW has registered a report and that one of the suspects has been detained by the police.
But Maliwal said three of the suspects are still at large.
It comes as the rape crisis in India has resulted in an average of 86 cases per day.
Last month, a mother chopped off her boyfriend’s genitals with a kitchen knife to “teach him a lesson” after he tried to rape her daughter.
The 36-year-old mother came home just in time to catch her 32-year-old beau in the act of assaulting her daughter, 14, in the Mahevaganj area of Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh state, 160 kilometers east of New Delhi.
