Once again humanity has been ashamed in India and police has arrested a 25 years old man for allegedly raping and attacking a 6 years old girl in Cuttack district, Odisha.
The incident took place on Saturday evening and the girl is in the state of coma due to deep injuries that she has suffered.
The girl went out of the house to buy biscuits but when she didn’t come back for long, the villagers along with the girl’s family started searching for her and after an hour, she was found in an unconscious state in a school.
Ironically, the girl’s family wanted to enroll her in the same school this year where she is found in critical condition. Her mother, who has two more kids and is presently six months pregnant, said,
“She is a shy child. I wonder why this monster thought of assaulting her.”
Girl’s father works as a cook in another state. Her mother said that there was power cut in the village at that time that made it more difficult to search for her.
The investigation officer told how the accused lured the child,
“He bought the child a chocolate worth Rs 5 and five toffees from the shop and took her to the school, where he allegedly tried to have sex with her.”
The officer also told that the girl screamed when the accused tried to assault her sexually so,
“The accused allegedly choked her and banged her face on the school wall three times. Then he left her there, thinking she had died.”
When the people were searching for the girl, the accused also joined them but police circled him after talking to the villagers and the girl’s family. The medical report is yet to come but the doctors have confirmed that the girl’s private parts are injured.
Meanwhile Pratap Jena, the health minister of the state, also visited hospital to see the victim on Monday and assured that all the cost of treatment will be paid by the government.
The accused has been booked under the sections of rape, attempt to murder and also under the relevant sections of POCSO. Accused’s bail plea has been rejected by the court and police will try to file the chargesheet within 60 days.
The things don’t seem to be bright for Odisha as in the last seven days, 10 cases of sexual abuse have been reported on minors.
Government needs to introduce some drastic measures to improve the situation. What do you say?
