Members of the All India Students Association protest against crimes against women and children in Delhi

An eight-month-old Indian girl was Tuesday recovering in hospital after she was raped at her home in Delhi, the latest such case in a country notorious for high levels of sexual violence.

"I left for duty and, later, my wife also had to leave for about an hour", the baby's father said. The bed was soaked in blood.

"The child's parents had gone to work leaving their daughter in the care of their sister-in-law, " police said.

The man, who is reportedly the first cousin of the child and lives in the same building, has confessed to the crime, reported PTI. Upon returning home, the mother of the girls found the baby unconscious in blood.

During the day, the sister-in-law's son took her to a separate room on the pretext of playing with her, then raped her.

A medical examination confirmed assault.

"Doctors have said her condition is critical", a senior police officer said, according to the Hindustan Times newspaper. The 21-year-old accused, who has been identified as Suraj was babysitting the child.

She scooped the baby in her arms and rushed her to the hospital.

The family told the police that they suspected the child's cousin, who had been missing since the incident. He was later traced and arrested.

Hitting out at the police in a series of tweets, she raged: "This is not the rape of an eight-month-old child but the rape of the Delhi Women's Commission".

After the incident, the parents lodged a case against the accused under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences or POCSO and other sections of Indian Penal code.
