Congress president Sonia Gandhi visited AIIMS hospital on Saturday to enquire about the minor girl who was raped allegedly by her neighbour in east Delhi.

Gandhi went to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and visited the girl in her room. She enquired about the victim's treatment and progress from doctors, and spoke with the parents of the victim.

The rape victim was shifted to AIIMS last evening.

The five-year-old girl was brutally raped and assaulted allegedly by her neighbour while being held captive and starved for two days. She also contracted infection from foreign objects inserted in her body.

The horrific incident took place in east Delhi's Gandhi Nagar. The girl, who was missing from April 15 evening, was rescued on April 17 from the ground floor of the building where her family was staying.
