In a clear case of a psychopath, a man named Sunil Rastogi, who is also father of 5 children, used to allegedly rape minor girls in New Delhi. Interesting facts were revealed when Police interrogated him.
It came to the fore that Rastogi used to wear red jacket and blue jeans while trying to assault minor girls. He believed that such kind of attire would be lucky for him and would protect him from getting caught.
Accused paedophile Sunil Rastogi was sent to judicial custody for 14 days by a Delhi court on Monday.
The 38-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting school girls by trapping them by saying that he has been sent by their parents for giving them some items or others in east Delhi's New Ashok Nagar area, police said on Sunday.
Sunil Rastogi was arrested on Saturday on the basis of tip off, DCP(East) Omvir Singh said. "The accused told police that he used to target minor girls.
Whenever he would find any minor girl going to home from school, he used to mislead her on the pretext that her father had sent some clothes or some other articles to give her and take her to an isolated place," he added.
The accused works as a tailor and is married with five children, including three girls, said another officer, adding that his daughters are being counselled to know whether he had also targeted them.
On January 10, two cases of kidnapping were registered in New Ashok Nagar police station wherein complainants alleged a man misled their daughters, aged 10 and 9, said the officer.
The accused allegedly took them on the stairs of a building and fled when they raised an alarm, he said. Earlier, on December 13 also, a case under sections 376 (Punishment for rape) and 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) of IPC and section 6 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act was registered on the statement of a minor girl, said the officer.
He said since all the three cases had a similar pattern, it was suspected that the same person was involved in all of them and investigations were taken up.
"In all the three cases, victims were minors in the age group of 9-10 and it was also revealed that the accused first misled the minors by telling them that their father had given some clothes or articles for them and then he took them to isolated place where he allegedly tried to sexually assault them," said the officer.
