Disturbingly, such incidents of sexual abuse against children have become rampant in India. Today, we had reported how a man named Tausif Imran Khan (19) in Vadodara had repeatedly raped a 14-year-old class X girl and recorded her on his mobile phone. Allegedly the man had also attempted to brainwash her to convert to Islam by taking her to various religious places.
In yet another horrific incident, a teen boy was allegedly raped by four men of his village in the Puwaya area in Shahjahanpur. The incident took place on June 17th evening when the four accused forcibly took the 13-year-old boy to an orchard and allegedly raped him, said the police.
On June 9, a man named Shahnawaj was caught red-handed after he raped a 9-year old Dalit girl. Shahnawaj, a native of the town, had called the victim to his place on the pretext of giving her some clothes. As soon as the victim reached his place, he took her inside a room and allegedly raped her.
Similarly, on June 14, a 55-year-old man, Kalam Ansari was caught raping a 10-year-old girl Meera (name changed) on June 10.
In a similar deplorable incident at Aligarh, one Zahid had brutally choked a minor girl, Tina Sharma (name changed) to death over an argument with her family regarding a small loan amount. The brutal incident had shocked the conscience of the nation.
Zahid had brutally choked Tina with a dupatta (scarf) and hid the body in his house in a straw bag. After three days when the corpse started emitting a foul smell, Zahid threw Tina in a pile of trash. Tina’s body was completely decomposed with her eyes gouged out.
