Snehalaya’s childline comes to the rescue of a brutalized girl-child!

Snehalaya is a collaborative organization of the national network of Child Line in Ahmednagar dist. This unit of Snehalaya is working 24x7 for the protection of child rights since last 12 years.

 On 24th March, 2014 the Child Line members on night duty were out patrolling. They got a call about a girl in distress at an isolated spot in Ambikanagar, Kedgon (Ahmednager). The Child Line team-members rushed to the spot and discovered a terrified girl-child. After comforting her gently, the young girl managed to convey her parent’s contact details at Shivajinagar (Ahmednagar). Since it was late at night, the team-members handed over the daughter and requested a meeting the next day.

At Child Line’s office the frightened girl was counselled. She reluctantly revealed the entire sordid story of being stalked by 3 big boys, being threatened and finally being brutally gang-raped. Asst. Police Inspector was contacted and the victim was accompanied to the Topkhana police station along with her parents. The F.I.R of the case was registered under IPC 366, 376, 506, 34 and POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses). Child Line team-members urged the police to arrest the cruel rapists immediately. Childline is providing all support to the victim.

Remember to call  CHILDLINE toll-free number 1098 anytime, anywhere, when any distressed child needs help. Snehalaya’s CHILDLINE is equipped, geared and willing to promptly provide succor to suffering children
