Father sexually abuses daughter in Kerala

Child was molested after being forced to drink alcohol

04 Gulf News

Thiruvananthapuram: The shocking series of sexual abuse of children in their own families has come back to haunt the state, with another report of a six-year-old girl in Kuruppampady in Ernakulam district being abused by her father. In this case, reports indicate that the girl was abused after being forced to drink alcohol.

Police have filed a case against the man, following a complaint by the girl’s mother. The man is absconding. The incident came to light when the girl was taken to a psychiatrist after she showed some behavioural problems.

Reports in local media say the girl has disclosed that some of her father’s friends had also abused her. The girl’s parents had been separated and the abuse happened after the mother had recently requested her husband to take care of the girl.

The latest instance of child abuse within the family comes within days of two similar incidents reported from Kottayam and Kannur districts. In Kannur, a teenager was reportedly abused by her father, brother and uncle, while in Kottayam, a man was held for abusing his two teenage daughters. The second incident created another controversy when reports surfaced that the family was socially ostracised after the mother of the girls reported the matter to the police.

    What a shame, i think no need to punish such person rather he should be sent to hospital for treatment and after he gets fit to live in society a thought of what he did make him regret for rest of life.

    Shame on society. Such things are repeating only because of weak laws. these cultureless creatures should be punished severely so that it should be lesson for others.

    This is not just shocking, but shameful too. where will these girls go if they get molested and raped in their own home by family members? What kind of society is this where humans are behaving like beasts? This six year old girl must be in tough and painful stage. her father has tarnish the meaning of relations. These criminals who rape their own daughters, sisters are not meant to be called civilized. So I guess they must face stern and severe punishment, so that nobody dares to repeat this. Family means love, protection and support but after reading these kind of stories you feel sorry and angered. In the second case where the mother was aware of her husband's dirty act with elder daughter, but she kept quiet is also not correct. She coud fight back for her daughters. Domestic voilence gets encouraged if the victim stays quiet and doesnt oppose and condemn against it. Giving these culprits a painful physical punishments will be a example for the society.
