72 minors raped, 112 kidnapped in 13 months


Data obtained through the Right to Information Act, 390 cases of exploitation of minor kids took place in Pune city in 13 months, from January 2014 to February 2015. Of these, 72 cases were of rape of minor kids and 112 involved kidnapping and abduction.

The data was obtained by activist Vihar Durve. Of the 316 cases registered and investigated in 2014, trial in only 6 cases had started and not a single case achieved a conviction.
There seems to be a rise in cases registered in January 2014, as compared to January 2015. In January 2014, a total of 16 crimes against kids were committed including five rapes and seven kidnappings. In January 2015, the number of crimes against children went up to 41 with five rapes and 27 kidnappings.
Durve said the high rate of crimes against minors was alarming and the police machinery and administration had failed to rein in the culprits and punish them.
“There are ways to stop these crimes. One is to set up fast track courts — to hear cases along with cases of crimes against women — and punish the guilty.
Police machinery has to be improved. As per data, there are as 61,400 vacancies in Maharashtra Police. Street lights have to be improved. There are many spots where streetlights are missing or are faulty giving miscreants an opportunity to commit crimes,” said Durve.
Jayant Naiknaware, Deputy Commissioner of Police (crime) said the police were making every effort to stop crime against children. He said several sensitisation programmes were conducted at the police station level to train officials and the constabulary to deal with cases involving children.
“We have undertaken a programme to find and rescue missing children. We have been taking the help of NGOs like Childline to help kids and create awareness about crimes against children. As per the Supreme Court ruling, we started to record each case of missing kids as kidnapping case. This could have inflated the number of kidnappings,” said Naiknaware.

Yet another gruesome incident of the rape of a six-year-old baby girl has come to light in the wake of protests over the death of a seven-year-old rape victim from Bara.   

The minor was sexually assaulted by her neighbour at Thoklung-2 of Terhathum district in the eastern Nepal. The incident that took place 11 days ago was made public after the efforts to settle the case at local level failed, according to police.

The victim was taken to hospital only after a week after her health deteriorated, victim’s mother said over telephone. The victim has been admitted to a well-facilitated hospital after providing preliminary check-up at a local health institution.

The victim’s private organ has been torn and is swollen, Dr. Kijan Maharjan said. The victim has been suffering from unstoppable urination, pain in vaginal canal and inability to move.
