Yes. This is yet another rape news. But not certainly just another news. At least not for the ones who have children at their homes. This case has only victims in it.
In Ludhiana, on 18th January the 4 YO rape survivor was alone at home when her mother had gone out shopping. Her neighbor and one of her rapists, the 13 YO boy invited her to play with him and meanwhile, his 12 YO friend came to visit him. And then, they both found it perfectly apt to gangrape the 4 YO girl.
The girl’s mom called to know of the mishap when she returned home crying and bleeding.
Inspector Vijay Kumar, SHO Salem Tabri police station, revealed that the girl’s medical examination confirmed rape. According to Hindustan Times, in her complaint, the girl’s mother said she had gone to market and left her daughter alone at their rented accommodation in Salem Tabri area, but when she returned she was shocked to see her daughter crying and bleeding.
A case under IPC section 376 (rape) and Section 8 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act has been registered.
The elder of the two boys is currently studying in class 7th and the younger is in 5th. Most of us must be having vivid memories of playing together in grounds with ‘gender’ feeling not having crossed our minds when we were of that age. Then how could rape strike these little minds?? Isn’t it something really to worry about?
And we have to think twice before calling the accused ones ‘culprit’. They’re just some more victims of situations. We’re ashamed enough not to talk sex in front of our kids but proudly allow them handled the internet. It’s good. But that’s how they’re introduced to ‘porn culture’. Maybe this is the adverse effect showing up. Our kids must learn sex. The right sex by right means.
