Four boys suspected of repeatedly raping 11-year-old girl | The Times of  Israel

 

An 11-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her teenage brother and father in Pune. Also, her grandfather and distant uncle used to assault her sexually. The Pune police also added that this crime was perpetrated over the past five years. Police have reported a case under different sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for rape but are yet to arrest the culprits. 

The crime has been reported under section 376 of the Indian Penal Code against a young teenage brother and 45-year-old father. Under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), the crime has been reported against grandfather and uncle. Her grandfather’s age is around 60, and her uncle’s age is around 25.

The victim and her family are from Bihar and currently live in Pune. The incident was revealed when this 11-year-old girl opened up during a ‘good touch and bad touch’ session in school. When the father and daughter resided in Bihar in 2017, he began sexually harassing his daughter. Around November 2020, the girl’s older brother began sexually molesting her. The girl’s grandfather and a distant uncle used to improperly touch her. According to Inspector Satpute, because all incidences occurred individually and the suspects may not have been aware of each other’s acts, this is not a case of gang rape. Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO) will also be amended, according to the police.
