A 20-year-old man identified as Sunil Kumar arrested on charges of raping and killing a three-year-old girl on November 11 confessed in front of the Police on Wednesday that he raped at least nine girls aged between three to seven years in the past two years.
He raped girls in four different cities New Delhi, Gurugram, Jhansi, and Gwalior, said police.
He did not show any feeling of deep regret for what he did, the police said. He answered every question asked calmly. He said that he did not remember when he committed his first crime.
The case spotlights the number of young children who go missing every year in India and raises the question of whether the police have sufficient resources to investigate such brutal sex crimes.
Sunil Kumar was arrested on Monday man on charges of raping and killing a three-year-old girl on November 11 in a slum area of the city of Gurugram.
The police said the unemployed killer said he mostly targeted those children who visited bhandaras or community kitchens for free meals. He offered sweets and money and then abducts them.
“He used to first break the legs of the victims before attempting rape,” said Subhash Boken, an assistant sub-inspector and public relations officer with Gurugram police. “Then he would murder them.”
Police investigated all complaints of missing girls below 10 years in the city. They linked three cases of dead children to his statement and are investigating the rest.
The alleged killer has so far confessed to killing and raping nine innocent girls since November 2016, he raped and murdered four girls in Delhi, three girls in Gurugram, one in Gawlior and one in Jhansi.
Sunil told police he raped all the girls twice before killing them. The police said Sunil said he is addicted to alcohol, but the way he searches and chooses his target, does not seem like work of a drunken man. Sunil told interrogators he only targets little girls because they would not be able to tell their parents clearly about him. But none of his victims survived as he killed them very brutally.
Sunil also said the first time he committed the crime was in Delhi, Sangam Vihar. He went there to attend a wedding ceremony, in 2015. There he targeted a 16-year- old girl, and he himself would have been around 17 at that time. His attack becomes unsuccessful as the girl shouted; he saved his life and ran away. He never visited there ever again.
His victims were mostly the daughter of migrants who keep changing their cities. Sunil’s sister and mother live in Gurugram. He said his family was aware of his behaviour and told him to stay at home. They tried to confine him but he would find a way to escape.
“It is very unfortunate that such cases are still happening in India, despite the government framing a law and approving the death penalty for rape,” said Priti Mahara, an official of child rights organization CRY.
