Kerala molestation: Trader abused girl in the past as well

Police did not act on the molestation complaint for more than two weeks. They filed an FIR only on Saturday after a news channel aired the CCTV visuals

He had a close relationship with the woman, who has now been arrested for her role in facilitating the girl's abuse by the businessman. The crime was not reported by the child, but by theatre staff who had seen the CCTV footage of Kutty abusing her in the front row. She had taken the child to the theatre and let him sit in the middle.

What is the case about?

The theatre owner had given the footage to Childline on April 25. We had checked the entire footage. The NGO then handed over the documentary evidence to the local police. MoideenKutty was booked under Section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and the POCSO Act. He was also taken for a medical checkup and is expected to be presented before a magistrate soon. Relevant sections of the POCSO Act have been slapped against both. According to the remand report, Moideenkutty had abused the girl at her rented house with the consent of her mother.

The Kerala police is being criticised for delaying investigation in the case.

The Home Department may now file a case against sub-inspector K G Baby for not taking action despite a complaint lodged by the Childline officials.

Post the backlash, state minister of health and social welfare KK Shailaja has said that the police delay will be probed. "The Childline activists did not inform us about the place of occurrence", the SHO said. DGP Loknath Behara said stringent action would be taken against the accused in the case. Kerala Assembly Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan said the police had committed a "serious lapse" by failing to act quickly. However, they did not take any action. "It's shocking that all this happened with the knowledge of the mother and an appropriate case should be registered against the mother too", said Josephine.
