WICKED WORLD: Woman attacks 6-year-old niece’s private parts with hot spoon

Mumbia: Malvani police on Sunday arrested a 40-year-old homemaker for allegedly branding her six-year-old niece’s private parts with a hot spoon for spending Rs10 on chocolate instead of buying chicken liver.

Police said the accused tied up the girl’s hands and stuffed a towel in her mouth before branding her several times.

The girl is recuperating at KEM Hospital. The victim was living with her aunt since she was three months old after her mother died and her alcoholic father abandoned her.

The accused’s sister-in-law lodged a complaint on Saturday, said Malvani police inspector Arjun Rajane.

The accused has been booked for attempt to murder and criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code as well as under the Pocso Act and Child Labour Act. She will be produced in court on Monday.

The incident took place on September 29 when the accused sent the girl to the market with Rs 50 to buy chicken.

Cops said the aunt got upset when the girl returned home with chocolate instead of buying chicken liver with the balance money. She allegedly tied up the girl’s hands, gagged her and branded her.

In her complaint, the sister-in-law said, “She used to make my niece do household work and beat her up for small mistakes.

“On Saturday, I dropped in to check on the child. I saw that she was in a lot of pain. After a lot of coaxing she told me what had happened and showed me the burns on her private parts.

“She said her aunt had threatened her with dire consequences if she told anyone about the assault.”

She took her niece to the police station and lodged a complaint. Cops got the girl admitted at Shatabdi Hospital. She was later shifted to RN Cooper Hospital and then to KEM.
