The police have now arrested the woman and Moideen Kutty and the duo has been charged under Section 354 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act as well as the Juvenile Justice Act. The police informed that the child may have been subjected to molestation in the past as well. The police also confirmed that the mother was aware of this incident and she claimed that this was the first that the child has been subjected to any sexual abuse. Though the police suspect otherwise.

The child has given a detailed statement to the magistrate and has narrated the horror of being molested several times in the past. She then underwent a medical test and has now been shifted to a Nirbhaya home, where she will also undergo counselling.

There was a widespread condemnation against the authorities for delaying the investigation. DGP Loknath Behara said stringent action would be taken against the accused in the case. Speaker of Kerala Legislative Assembly P Sreeramakrishnan said it was a serious lapse on the part of police for failing to act immediately. Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala had demanded action against the ‘erring’ police personnel.
