Yet another frustrating incident at Pollachi. Despite every effort, every voice for women’s safety, every individual’s lament, we cannot change these frequent headlines, right? And yes, the reality is this. It can never be changed.
Recently, a group of 9 men was arrested for sexually assaulting a 16 years old girl. This incident came to the light when the girl went missing on Thursday. The victim later returned on Friday and a complaint was given to the Pollachi all-woman police.
“Victim’s mother passed away when she was just two years old. After that, her father was married to another woman. Hence all these years she was looked after by her grandmother. It is visible that there is not much guidance provided to her. She was a class X dropout. At this instant, she fell in love with the prime accused Amanullah, a 25 years old man who is a coolie worker in a vegetable market. Owing to the boy’s assurance of marriage, the girl stayed in a relationship with him. Amanullah grabbed this chance and misused her with his 9 other friends for about 2 years. They threatened her to not to tell anyone and warned her with the dire consequences”, an official told Times of India.
Later on Thursday, i.e on July 4, the girl went missing. On the day, Amanullah picked her up from the village and assaulted her with his friend Bagavathi. Also, they invited their friend Prabhu to misuse her. After this obscene incident, the girl returned to her home on Friday. The angered relatives lodged a complaint against the offenders. Now, police have arrested the 9 men including Amanullah. However, the police are still in search of the 10th victim Prabhu.
