Kerala woman booked for raping 9 year old boy. A case was registered against a 36-year-old woman by Thenhippalam police in Malappuram for allegedly raping a 9 year old boy, a Times of India news report said.
The incident was found out after the boy told a doctor at a clinic who in turn told Childline authorities.
Childline authorities recorded the victim’s statement and a complaint was sent to the police.
These sections under the Pocso Act deal with cases pertaining to aggravated penetrative sexual assault.
Childline said the victim had been subjected to sexual abuse for over a year. “We have confirmed that the boy was sexually misused by the woman for several months, and it has affected his mental health.
The accused is the boy’s uncle’s wife and she lives near his house,” Times of India quoted Childline (Malappuram) coordinator Anwar Karakkadan as saying.
“We have learned that there was a dispute between the family of the survivor and accused. We have to check whether the allegation is linked to the dispute. Police will record the statement of accused in the coming days,” Thenhippalam sub-inspector Binu Thomas was quoted as saying.
