What could be the most heinous crime? Murder? Causing injury? Sexual Assault? Or maybe, sexual assault of a mentally challenged teenager.
Yes! At Sanganer, recently two minors, a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old, allegedly sexually abused a 15-year-old mentally challenged boy and recorded the video clip of the act.
The duo was detained by the police and sent to the correction home after victim’s family filed a FIR. Sanganer police station’s assistant sub-inspection Jai Prakash told TOI “The video recording went viral and reached in the hands of the victim’s parents. They were shocked and decided to file a complaint against the two minors at the police station,” and further added that case was filed on Sunday evening and on Monday morning the police detained the two minors who confessed to having sexually abused the minor.
The minor was sent for the medical examination and its report confirmed that he has been abused. On further investigation, the abusers were found to live in the same locality and revealed that they had an eye on the victim from a long time as he lived alone at his house during the day and being mentally challenged, could not reveal his ordeal.
The victim’s parents work as daily wage labourers and were working at the construction sites when the duo allegedly raped and abused the victim at home. “The incident is very horrifying when we probed the duo, they said that they had dropped out of school and spent their times playing on the streets,” the police official said.
The Jaipur police have also recovered several video recordings from the mobile phones from the duo. The police have filed a case against the duo under section 377 (Unnatural offences) of IPC and other relevant provisions of the protection of children from sexual offences act (POSCSO).
