A 12-year-old boy in Vidisha district was murdered, and then his body was thrown into a river by a 36-year-old man on 4 November,  after he had reportedly forced the child to have unnatural sex with him last week.

Vidisha district has recorded the second highest number of cases of sexual abuse against children in the country in 2015.

The Logical Indian spoke with the sub-inspector of Kurwai police station, Virendra Singh, who confirmed the case and said that the body was taken out of the local river on 4 November.

“Bhalla aka Jagdish Ahirwar is a hardened criminal. Previously, a similar case was lodged against him, and he has already served a two-year jail sentence,” Singh said.

“Jagdish has been taken into custody and while interrogating he accepted involving in unnatural sex with the minor. He then strangled the boy and threw the body in the river,” he added.

Unnatural sex, in the Indian Penal code, refers to acts such as sodomy.

Ahirwar has been booked for the boy’s murder. After the medical examination confirms the occurrence of unnatural sex, section 377 will also be added against Ahirwar in this case, the sub-inspector explained.

There were 1,568 cases of rape against minors in the central state putting it on the second place after Maharashtra, which reported 2231 such incidents. There were 39 cases of an unnatural act with children under section 377 of the Indian Penal Code with Uttar Pradesh, Kerala and Delhi being top three states.

The NCRB data in 2015 showed that almost 95% of child sex abuse crimes were committed by people known to the victims such as parents, relatives, neighbours and teachers. 


Child sex abuse is widespread in India and but only a few of them get reported. The fact that it is not reported and is kept behind closed doors makes the entire process to figure out the existence of child sexual abuse more difficult.

The Logical Indian community is outraged by the rape and death of a minor. We urge the authorities to look into the matter and ensure a proper investigation. We also request everyone, especially parents to educate children on child abuse and foster a friendly and open environment at home.
