The issue of their upkeep is important. However, at present these children have been kept in a protection home. At the same time, the victim has been handed over to her family members. Now the 45-year-old accused Om Prakash has been sent to judicial custody by the court.
What is the whole matter :-
This incident happened in the year 2009 in Bharat Nagar area. In the report presented in the court by Bharat Nagar Police Station President Prem Kumar Singh, it was told that the 11-year-old girl was kidnapped by a person living in the neighborhood. He had gone to Bihar with the child. The police continued the search for the girl. The girl was finally recovered from a slum in Narela on 24 October 2021. The now 24-year-old victim told that the accused kept raping her. In the year 2012, at the age of 14, the first child was born. By the year 2016, she gave birth to two more children due to rape. Thereafter, the accused fled away leaving him there. Fearing stigma for becoming the mother of three children, instead of returning home, she returned to Delhi and started living in a slum in Narela. Here the children started to earn their living by picking up the garbage.
In this case, the court has asked the Delhi Police to consult with the prosecution whether sections of Pocso can be added against the accused along with the charges of kidnapping and rape, because the girl child was born in the year 1998. And she was just 11 years old at the time of the incident. She had her first child at the age of 14. All these facts come under the Prevention of Child Sexual Exploitation Act (Pocso). Police is yet to file a report in this regard. After hearing the victim's ordeal, the police gathered all the information about the accused. The accused was caught by the police on 30 March 2022 from Pipariya police station area of Kanpur. The accused was brought to Delhi and presented in Rohini court.
