Two young children are reported to have been raped in the Indian capital of Delhi, drawing strong criticism from the city’s chief minister.

Arvind Kejriwal accused the government and police of not doing enough to protect minors in the city.

The latest attacks come after a four-year-old girl was allegedly raped in Delhi last week.

Two years ago, India tightened its laws on sexual violence after the brutal gang-rape and murder of a student.

Mr Kejriwal criticised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung for failing to provide adequate safety and security in the city.

The responsibility for the Delhi Police comes under the national government’s home ministry.

“Repeated rape of minors is shameful and worrying. Delhi police has completely failed to provide safety. What are PM n his LG doing?,” Kejriwal said on Twitter.

Kejriwal said the prime minister should either act or transfer the control over the police to the state government.
