However, police officials also said that these injuries could be due to an infection or scratch marks. Last week, the traumatised boy, who was subjected to several months of torment finally opened up to his parents, after which the local physician discovered injuries on his private parts. MiD DAY had reported the story on March 29 (‘School bus attendant sent 6-yr-old boy to paedophiles’)
In her statement, the mother of the Senior KG student revealed that Farha, the lady bus attendant, forced her son to accompany the main accused identified as Prithvi and Kaif to a hotel room in Andheri, where he was sexually assaulted.
Police officials are still awaiting the reports from Nair Hospital and a team of six doctors has been formed to give a detailed analysis. Speaking to MiD DAY, the boy’s uncle said that he doesn’t understand why the police is relying on the medical reports since there are chances that the accused wouldn’t have sodomised but instead forced the child to perform oral sex.
While the investigations continue, the innocent child still wakes up with a shudder each night. “For the police it’s just a case and they are waiting to close it but for us the future of our child is at stake. I, along with my family are hopeful that our little boy comes out of this trauma soon or it will be very difficult for us to handle it,” the child’s uncle added.
DCP Dhananjay Kulkarni (Zone V) said, “The medical reports have been suggesting that there is injury to his private parts but the timing of the bruise is days after the date mentioned by the parents. Police is now waiting for detailed analysis by the panel of six doctors at the Nair Hospital.”
