Four-year-old Indian boy sexually assaults classmate

A case of rape under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act has been registered against the accused.

"The Indian Penal Code provides children below seven years of age certain protections against prosecutions". The girl, who was nearby, listening to her mother talk to this correspondent, said meekly, "I want to become a witch so that I can kick the boy like a ball". She told her mother that the boy used his finger and a sharpened pencil to assault her sexually which left wounds on the child's private parts.

Then they approached the police with their complaint.

According to the victim's mother, she came to know about the incident after her daughter returned from school and narrated what happened to her at night while writhing in pain because of "some injuries she had sustained in her private parts". Her mother says she's now scarred for life and school would be a torture for her.

Hours after the girl continued to complain of the constant pain, she started crying, she broke her silence on the assault. "We are examining those provisions even as we are handling the matter with the highest degree of sensitivity".

The mother of the girl has also alleged inaction by school authorities, she had complained to a schoolteacher via a "text messages" regarding the incident and the school reportedly did not assist the family.

According to the police, the minor victim was sexually assaulted by her classmate in the school's classroom as well as the bathroom in the absence of staff. She told her mother that a boy from her class unbuttoned her trousers in the classroom and used his finger to assault her. A medical-legal was made first and later a police case was registered against the four-year-old boy at the Dwarka south police station.

She said her daughter's delayed exit from the classroom, as she saw in CCTV footage, corroborated the sexual assault allegation.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, the school's lawyer had earlier refuted the claims of the mother and said that they had an ayah present in every washroom in the school.
