Bangalore cannot escape being in news for rape and girl child abuse almost on a daily basis, as in less than a week after last week’s Orchid International school incident, another two-year-old girl child was allegedly molested on Sunday at a playground in the city, and police were quick to arrest the suspect.
“We have arrested the accused Suresh, 29, on a complaint lodged by the victim’s parents that the incident took place in a playground near their house,” a police official told IANS in Bangalore.
A criminal case was registered against the suspect under sections 4 and 6 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 and section 376 of the Indian Penal Code. “We will seek the suspect’s custody for interrogation on Monday from a local court and investigate the case to file charge sheet at the earliest,” the official said.
Currently, the child’s parents took the child to a hospital for check-up and treatment. The latest heinous crime against a girl child came a week after a three-year-old student was molested by an attendant in Orchids School in the northern suburb Oct 21, which was few weeks after a six-year-old student was allegedly raped by her Hindi teacher in Cambridge School.
