Domestic abuse and in general abuse against women is something that is highly prevalent in our society and is definitely not something that we can be proud of. Now, a shocking incident has come to light from God's Own Country - Kerala. A man and his four friends have been taken into custody by the Thiruvananthapuram Police. The man is said to have gang-raped & tortured his own wife along with his friends, that too in front of a child. A case of rape has been registered by the Kerala State Women's Commission based on a statement by the woman. It is being reported that the husband took his wife and their children to a beach in Puthucurichy on Thursday, after which they visited his friend's house. Here, the woman was reportedly made to consume alcohol and then sexually assaulted by the husband and his four friends.
Reports state that the woman was rescued by a young man, after finding her crying on the road in an inebriated state, with injuries on her face. He is then said to have taken her to her house and informed the Police about the incident. The Police recorded her statement and also had her treated at a Government hospital, following which she was discharged. The woman has claimed that apart from being sexually abused in front of her child, she was also tortured by being slapped repeatedly and inflicted with burns by cigarette butts. A report from the Kadinamkulam Police Station reveals that the arrests would be recorded after verifying the facts. The husband is also said to have forced the woman not to file a complaint. The arrested men are said to have criminal records and are also suspected to be a part of a drug-peddling gang. Some reports suggest that the child was also subject to physical abuse and the arrested will hence be booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses Act (POCSO)!
