A Kindergarten school gardener has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 3-year-old student on June 26.

Rise in Rape by Family Members in India

New Delhi, July 2014

Rape by a family member like a brother or father is one of the most under-reported crimes in India.  The number of cases reported on incest rape in India, has increased from 350 to 501 in the last one year between 2012 to 2013. Most victims are minors, aged between 14-18 years.

Data accessed from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) reveal that Maharashtra has reported the highest number of such cases in the last two years increasing from 77 in 2012 to 108 in 2013. This is followed by Kerala which reported 79 cases last year as compared to 47 in 2012. Uttar Pradesh witnessed a sharp increase in reporting of incest rape cases from 12 in 2012 to 63 in 2013. Other states that closely followed are Delhi where cases increased from 41 to 47 and Rajasthan where the number of cases were 56 up from 2012’s 44. Indian laws do not mention incest specifically but in case the victim is a minor, it is treated as a sexual abuse case under the Protection of Child from Sexual Offences Act 2012.


600 #Trafficked #Children Rescued in #Kerala

About 600 children from the states of Bihar and Jharkand who were being taken on a train to a children’s shelter in Kerala, apparently on the pretext of being provided with food and education, were rescued when the police got a tip off that they were actually being trafficked. The children have now been temporarily housed in different shelters and orphanages.  The police say they are investigating the matter, but have arrested only 8 of the 43 adults escorting the children.


Systemic #Rape and Sexual Torture of #Children in a #Shelter Near #Mumbai

The Shelter Chandraprabha Charitable Trust

Shocking tales of rape and sexual torture have emerged from a shelter for children near Mumbai.

The head of the shelter Ajit Dabholkar and his manager Lalita Tonde were arrested on Tuesday.

Pune-based social worker Anuradha Sahasrabuddhe of Pune Childline, who is a complainant in the case, said the children between ages 5-15 years were raped, sexually tortured, and forced to have sex with each other.  These atrocities were filmed.  The children told Sahasrabuddhe that they “were forced to eat dog excreta if they resisted and locked up. If they threw up, they had to eat the vomit.”

Physical and sexual abuse children in shelters and orphanages in India is rampant, and while the government acknowledges it, little has been done to monitor NGOs and shelters and ensure the protection of the children.
