Gang-raped in Odisha, minor gives birth while mopping floor in Bengaluru
BENGALURU: A 16-year-old girl, who gave birth to a child while she was mopping the floor at her employers’ house in Bengaluru, has told investigators she was gang-raped in Odisha in early 2019. The child birth happened in November 2019.
The pregnant girl, who was squatting while mopping the floor, was suddenly found in a pool of blood. She had a spontaneous delivery. The girl and her baby were then rushed to a go nment hospital, where they were stabilised and details of the alleged rape were revealed. The case was brought before the district Child Welfare Committee (CWC) and a police case was registered under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act.
The girl, an illiterate, told police she was gang-raped in Odisha in early 2019 and that she arrived in Bengaluru in August 2019. She lived with her cousins, who also worked as domestic helps, in an apartment complex in south Bengaluru.
CWC sent the girl and her child to an NGO and established contact with her parents in Odisha. She was reunited with her parents and she took away the newborn with her in January 2020. Committee members said the survivor not showing any pregnancy symptoms and having a spontaneous delivery was shocking.
Anjali Ramanna, chairperson, CWC, told STOI the girl was stabilised along with the newborn at an NGO for over two-and-a-half months. “Her parents arrived from Odisha and were keen on taking their daughter and granddaughter home. The girl refused to give away her child for adoption and wanted to take care of her. Odisha police have registered a Pocso case and investigation is on,” Anjali said.
The case was also brought to the notice of the labour department. The Bengaluru couple who had employed the teenager are also facing the music for hiring a minor, which is a violation as per Child and Adolescent Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, the CWC chairperson said.
Officials who handled the case said the girl’s employers had noticed she’d gained weight, but she apparently told them she’d started eating well after working in Bengaluru. “She claimed she hardly had access to three square meals when she was in Odisha. No one knew about her pregnancy till she delivered,” an official said.
According to Dr Sripada Vinekar, a city-based gynaecologist, either the girl was hiding her pregnancy or she may have been ignorant of it. “For many girls, soon after puberty, the menstrual cycle is not regular. The girl hid details about the rape. She was either ignorant about being pregnant or didn’t reveal that too. She must have experienced pain while delivering the baby,” said Dr Vinekar.

That child should be sent to Army once he becomes adult so that he could serve the country or else he would become a beggar or live like an animal in future.

In India rapes keep happening but NO arrest keep happening. In other countries, rapes also keep happening and also arrest keep happening. Because in India is Gadhian Country, tolerate even rape but do not complain.

I am feeling so disgusted now. Such acts show that we men are becoming sex starved monsters. Really right now I feel like tying these rapists to my BMW and drag them for a mile. The mentality of us Indians, police, politicians and lawyers who defend such imbeciles is why rapists think they will get away. They have no fear.

When mangoes ripe up, they drop to ground below without any injury. When girls attain woman hood, no force can stop them from sex, be it legal or illegal. But due to razor sharp and impractical laws, normal biology takes shape of Gang Rape. Our laws need to be reworked.

You sound like a rapist as well. Very typical of hindoos.

Why have the police sent away the girl back to her village? Now the culprits will get hold of her and kill her or silence her somehow. This case is not going anywhere.
