Alleged sexual assault of 14-yr-old in Kadakkavoor: Medical report gives clean chit to mother

Thiruvananthapuram: In a case relating to an alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old boy by his own mother at Kadakkavoor in Thiruvananthapuram, police found the complaint to be false based on the medical report.

The medical report said there are no evidences to prove that the woman had assaulted her son when he was staying with his mother in 2019. The report also states that there exist no proof to show sexual assault. Though the boy was subjected to a detailed medical examination, the doctors were unable to establish any proof of assault. The complaint lodged on sexual assault of the minor boy is fake and baseless, the police said.

A special medical board was set up at the Thiruvananthapuram medical college and the boy was subjected to one or more medical examination. The board was not able to find any evidence of sexual abuse.

The special investigation team submitted the report to the POCSO court stating there exist no evidence against the woman to be included as accused in the case.

The woman, who was mother of 4 children, was arrested by the Kadakkavoor police under the POCSO Act in December. The father of the child had lodged a complaint with the Kadakkavoor police and based on that, the woman spent 7 months in jail.

The child’s parents were separated. Based on the complaint, a probe was ordered and subsequently the mother was arrested.

While investigating the case, the boy told the investigation team about the sexual assault at the hands of his mother. The woman was arrested and remanded to the Attakulangara women’s prison.
