Ernakulam: A 25-year-old woman was arrested at Kalady, Ernakulam district for allegedly raping a nine-year-old boy. Malayatoor Police arrested the Kadappara native after the minor's mother lodged a complaint against her.
It is reported that the child was subjected to counselling by his parents after they noticed certain physical discomforts in the child. During the counselling, the child revealed the woman physically and mentally harassed him.
Later, the police arrested the woman and produced her in the court. As per the latest reports she was sent to Kakkanad women’s jail.
Meanwhile, the accused woman’s husband denied the allegations and said the boy's mother had certain financial issues with his family, so she raised a false complaint.
But the police said that they had not received any complaints on these allegations yet.
Meanwhile, Congress leader OM George who is accused of sexually assaulting a minor, is still absconding.
A case under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act was registered against the District Congress Committee (DCC) member George.
The victim's relatives also allege that the police didn't show any interest in arresting the aides who tried to settle the case by way of bribe. Furthermore, they claim that the police have not bothered to question the victim.
The victim’s mother told the media that she is planning to go on a hunger strike in front of the police station to protest the “inaction and disinterest of the police in her daughter’s assault case”.
