In a shocking and shameful incident a 14 year old boy has been arrested for raping a 2 years old minor in Williamnagar in the East Garo Hills district of Meghalaya.
Last week there were reports of a father raping a 13 and 6 year old daughter and the Mahari trying to compromise the incident from Garo hills as well.
It is believed that the two year old was raped after her parents had gone to attend a funeral of a relative thereby leaving the child at the custody of this 14 year old youth.
It is obviously believed that the boy was known to the parents as they had left the toddler under the care of the youth.The Child is recuperating at a Hospital in Williamnagar .
Meanwhile the 14 year old boy has been arrested handed over the accused to the district child protection officer”
The Rape laws in India (Like in the case of Nirbhaya ) don’t allow minors to be tried by courts hence there is a likelihood that the perpertaror may get away with a lighter sentence .
