Child-friendly court awards three imprisonments


Days after Child Friendly Courts were instituted, three persons were convicted for sexual assault.

A 50-year-old man was awarded rigorous imprisonment of three months after the court found him guilty of sexually assaulting a 11-year-old victim, who is his daughter’s friend. He later threatened to kill her if she spoke of the incident.

In another case, a 28-year-old man was found guilty of trying to engage a three-and-a-half-year-old girl and 11-year-old girl in sexual acts. The victims refused and fled to their homes where they told their parents about the incident. The accused was awarded rigorous imprisonment of three years and a fine of ₹2,000 in addition to two separate periods of simple imprisonment of a year each and fine amounts.

In a separate case, a private tutor was awarded imprisonment of three years and a fine of ₹5,000 for sexual assault on a 15-year-old boy.

As many as 95 trials were conducted at the court.
