Three minor girls sexually exploited in Kerala
Three incidents of minor girls being sexually exploited came to light in Kerala Tuesday amid the country and its parliament being outraged over the gang-rape of a 23-year-old woman in Delhi.
In one case, the father of a minor was arrested; in another, it was the uncle who was the culprit and in the third case, it was a neighbour, who is absconding.
In Thrissur, a 10-year-old girl became the victim of her father's lust. "The accused has been arrested and he has confessed to the crime," said a police official.
In Kollam, a 49-year-old man has been arrested after he molested his sister-in-law's daughter.
The 13-year-old victim is currently undergoing treatment at a state-run hospital here.
The third case was reported in Malappuram district, where a Class 10 girl student was harassed by her neighbour who is absconding.
