MALAPPURAM: In the Edappaly theatre sexual abuse case, the police will book the accused under more charges by invoking POCSO act against him. The SI who failed to take immediate action against accused Moideen, even after receiving a complaint, will also be booked under POCSO act.    

Earlier Sections 9,10, 16 under POCSO Act and Section 75 under Child Rights Act were charged against the accused. In this there were many loopholes for their easy escape.  

Initially, police had not taken at face-value the suggestion of Child Line to charge the accused with more serious offences like 5 M and 6 under POCSO.

But when this became a controversy through media, State Police Chief Loknath Behera intervened and ordered to charge him with more serious offences.

The Child Line workers pointed out that if the Central government’s new amendment in the law against child abusers came into effect, the accused would get up to capital punishment.

“In the sections charged earlier, there were only offences like assault against child and touching her private parts but the police should have filed case as per sections 5, which include aggravated penetrative sexual assault. The CCTV visuals also shows this. There is something mysterious about police stand,” they said.

The Opposition had also alleged that police were trying to save the accused. Following this, the DGP swung into action and issued the order.

Meanwhile, the girl’s mother has confessed to the police that she has known Moideen since long back and she used to visit him at his quarters.

Moideen molested her 10-year-old daughter in theatre, apparently with her consent.

The girl, after her two day’s stay with police, has been shifted to Malappuram Nirbhaya home. Counsellors could only talk to the girl today; she looked very tired.

They said the child was responding to their questions but she would need more detailed counselling.
