Every single day we get bombarded with the news of rape and sexual assault against women and wonder what goes on in the mind of these criminals and what provokes them so much that they commit such heinous crimes. These monsters live among us in the same society and when they get an opportunity they prey on women and even kids who can’t even understand what is being done to them.

In a shocking case which gives us an insight into the modus operandi of these predators, Kerala police have arrested a 24 years old aspiring accountant, Sharaf Ali, from Kozhikode for allegedly running a chat group man named ‘Poombatta’ on the Telegram messaging app.

The Telegram group had around 5000 followers and was used as a platform to share disturbing rape videos of kids with an age group as low as 4 years. According to NDTV, some of the disturbing videos constituted a video of a 4-year-old girl being raped by two men, naked pics of eight years old girl uploaded by her father along with a caption, “the child didn’t understand anything but enjoyed the moments and pleasure“.

The accused who was arrested from Kerala’s Mallapuram also used to run “Nadaan Thoond” an online porn channel.

According to the Malappuram police, besides the channel, Ali had four groups on Telegram with almost 5,000 followers, where followers would be included only with permission from the admin but could contribute videos.Whereas Sharaf used to upload videos on Naadan Thoond, which means ‘desi porn’.

The group was discovered after a medical transcriptionist, Jaljith Thottolil, along with his friend Binu Phalgunan won the trust of the admin and joined the group.The duo then collected all the evidence and filed a complaint last month with the police.

“They debated the target age of the children on the group. One of the members suggested that videos of children between one and three years of age should be featured because they do not remember things. But the admin was particular that children only between the age of 4 and 15 should be featured,” Jaljith was quoted by NDTV

The shocking incident is surely not a standalone case and there must be a lot of similar groups running on the web. No wonder why the sexual assault cases against the children are rising with every passing day! We hope the cops take action against other group members as well who indulged in such heinous acts.
