In what can be termed a case of criminal negligence on part of the authorities and local administration, a 13-year-old victim of gang rape could not get medical attention for two days after she was violated.   

The girl was gang-raped on Saturday by two minors who have been detained in connection with the case, police said on Monday.

Senior Sub Inspector of Sahibabad Jitender Singh said the medical examination of the victim could not be conducted even after two days due to non-availability of doctors at the government hospital. 

The girl was playing with two boys who live in her neighbourhood when they coaxed her to accompany them to an isolated place and took turns to rape her, said her father in an FIR. 

A case has been registered under section 376 of the IPC and the POCSO Act.
