Tiruvallur police on March 30 arrested two men and a 30-year-old woman in Tamil Nadu under the Pocso Act for sexually abusing a 3-year-old for over 10 days. Reportedly, the woman is the toddler’s mother and the horrific act took place under the mother’s consent after taking the child to Andhra Pradesh.


What had happened?

According to The Times Of India, the woman, a native of Andhra Pradesh was married to a man from Tiruvallur. On March 14, the woman went missing with the child and two days later her husband filed a complaint at the police station.

Upon contacting the woman’s parents, the police learnt that she did not even reach her house. On March 26, the woman returned to her house with the child. The police officer said, “On Thursday, the child fell ill and was admitted to a government hospital in the city. The doctor after examination found that the girl was sexually abused and informed police.”

Upon questioning, the woman confessed that she had gone to meet her lover, 32-year-old Siva in Andhra, along with her relative. The two men had then sexually abused the child for 10 days, with the mother’s consent. The woman and two men have been remanded in judicial custody.


The Logical Indian take

This is not an isolated incident as there have been cases in the past where the victim faced torture at the hands of their own family members. Cases of child sex abuse seem to be rising with each passing day, especially in India. A house for a child is supposed to be a safe haven for them. However, cases like this show that children are not “safe” even in the comfort of their houses.

The Logical Indian strongly condemns such acts and urges the authorities to take necessary steps to ensure that a child does not have to face any kind of abuse at the hands of their guardians in the country. It also urges the authorities to take strict actions against the mother and the two accused.
