Mumbai: 10-year-old boy stripped naked and tied to tree by family
The police have not taken action against the family stating that the young child did not want to file a complaint
In a shocking incident, a 10-year-old boy was found stripped naked and tied to a tree by the Juhu police on Monday. The child was tied up by his family as a means of punishment.
The Police intervened in the case after a resident of the tata Colony, where the family lived, brought it to their attention. According to the witness, the young boy was crying incessantly for over 45 minutes.
A report in The Hindu quotes the witness as having stated, "The boy was crying loudly for around 45 minutes. I finally went to my balcony and saw that he had been stripped naked and tied to a tree. There were four to five other young boys who were standing there and doing nothing while he cried."
Meanwhile, the police have not taken action against the family stating that the young child did not want to file a complaint against his family members. Since the victim is a minor, his identity has been withheld.
The Hindu report also quotes senior police inspector Sunil Ghosalkar as having commented on the case and stated, "The boy’s mother told us that he had run away from school and come home early, and so his elder brother stripped and tied him up."
