East Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit and Delhi Health Minister A.K. Walia were heckled by protesters Friday afternoon here at Swami Dayanand hospital where they had gone to meet a five-year-old rape victim.

As soon as Dikshit and Walia arrived at the hospital, some protesters, including Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members, tried to stop them from entering the hospital premises and manhandled them.

Dikshit and Walia arrived a few minutes before the girl was shifted to Lok Nayak hospital from Swami Dayanand hospital for better treatment.

The girl was abducted April 15 and kept hostage for two days without food and water in a flat owned by the attacker, said to be in his 30s. He lived on the ground floor of the building in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar, in which the victim's family also stayed, police said.

The girl, who was raped repeatedly, was rescued when members of her family heard her screams Wednesday evening, police said.
