Minor Girl Raped In Pune- Report
“The incident came to light when the girl opened up during a ‘good touch and bad touch’ session in her school. Her ordeal was going on for the last five years,” said Ashwini Satpute, police inspector (crime).
According to Satpute, it is not an instance of gang rape because all the incidents occurred separately and the accused persons claim to be unaware of each other’s activities. According to the police inspector, the father began sexually assaulting his daughter in 2017 while they were living in Bihar, according to the complaint. Around November 2020, the girl’s older brother began allegedly sexually assaulting her. Her grandfather and a distant relative used to make allegedly inappropriate physical contact with her.
The survivor and her family hail from Bihar, and they are currently residing in Pune. Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act will be added in the case.

The minor lived with her parents and two younger siblings. In search of jobs, the family had relocated to Surat. When the girl’s mother returned home, she saw her daughter in a pool of blood. The minor girl was transported to the hospital after the police were notified.
