The girl’s 27-year-old cousin had been arrested and found guilty under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, and he could be sentenced to life in prison says the Press Trust of India.

“An eight-month-old baby has been brutally raped in the Capital and is battling for her life in a hospital. The worst has happened,” says the head of Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal, in a tweet after visiting the infant in the hospital.

Approximately 11,000 cases of child rape were reported in India in 2015, as stated by the National Crime Records Bureau, meaning that three children were raped everyday in Delhi alone.
