29th March revealed another sordid tale of sexual abuse of a minor girl age of 17th Year.
A gutsy minor girl Seema (name changed) walked into Snehalaya’s CHILD LINE along with her father to seek assistance to end her daylight nightmare. She narrated that her father is a tailor and the mother runs a beauty parlor. They have an estranged relationship especially because of her mother’s illicit affair with a man Hari. Seema lives with her mother. The mother agreed to let her paramour have a sexual relationship with Seema too. On 27th March the emboldened Hari grabbed Seema in her mother’s presence. After forcibly hugging and kissing her he molested Seema with full support from the evil mother. The ravaged Seema went sobbing to her father to escape further sexual assaults. The father confronted Hari and was cowed down with threats of physical violence. Hari told the father to remain silent about his sex-doll Seema otherwise he would also have to be fixed. The scared father had to back off.
In utter despair they remembered about CHILDLINE because of the outreach activities by child line team-members. And they gathered sufficient courage to come over to the CHILDLINE office.
Seema & her father were assured of all assistance. The CHILDLINE Co-ordinator contacted the Police Inspector of Tofkhana police station and presented all the background information to him. The Police Inspector took immediate action on the case. Hari and child’s mother were arrested under Sections of IPC No. 354, 34, 504, 506, 323 as well as Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act 2012 (POCSO) 7 & 8.
