Gurgaon, March 20: A 17-year-old US national was allegedly raped by a 21-year-old man in Gurgaon, whom she had befriended through social networking site Facebook.
However, the girl and her mother were not ready to file a complaint regarding the incident.
Doctors of AIIMS alerted the police, where the Class 9 student was admitted on Monday night (March 16) due to heavy bleeding.
"The medical examination at AIIMS confirmed rape. We have registered a case on the basis of the report," ACP (crime) Rajesh Kumar said.
The investigating officer also said that the girl had refused to share details of the Delhi-based man, who is an African national.
"In her statement to the duty magistrate on Wednesday, the girl requested that no harm be done to the accused," he added.
The girl, who reached India eight months ago, resides in a gated community.
According to the reports, the teenager was always in touch with the people on Facebook and had gone out with him on at least three occasions.
The man picked her up from home on Monday morning and took her to Balaji Guest House in Sector 38.
The girl was struggling to walk when the man dropped her back. "She was bleeding and in pain when her mother got home in the evening," Kumar said.
Initially the girl was not responding to the questions raised by her mother. Later she revealed what had happened to her and after that she was rushed to the AIIMS. When the police got there on Tuesday, they had left the hospital against doctors' advice, Kumar said.
The police is looking into the Facebook account of the African national to trace his whereabouts.
