Mangaluru, Apr 6: A 52-year-old caretaker of an orphanage at Kumpala has been arrested on Tuesday, April 6, on charges of physical and sexual abuse of a minor.

Addressing media, the police commissioner N Shashi Kumar said, “The arrested is Ayub hailing from Konaje. On March 28, the police department, the child welfare committee, and KS Hegde Hospital child welfare officer and the School of Social Work, Roshni Nilaya had conducted an awareness programme at TMA Pai Hall for 480 inmates of child care centres and orphanages within Mangaluru city police commissionerate. The programme was to create awareness on bad and good touches, child rights, and assessment to know whether the child underwent any kind of abuses and then to conduct counselling for the children.

“During the programme, we came to know that a 14-year-old boy was undergoing sexual and physical abuse at Noorani Yathim Khana Darul Masakeen Kumpala. In the beginning, the child said about some problems. After two rounds of counselling, the real issue came to light. Twenty such instances in six institutions came to light and a probe is in process.

“Four such instances are reported from the institution at Kumpala. The children have been rescued and shifted to a safe location.

“The programme which was conducted was completely confidential as we never informed the caretaker what the programme was all about. We had projected the programme as related to awareness on Covid. The reason for conducting the programme at TMA Pai Hall was that the children would not feel comfortable sharing anything at the child care centre.

“Women police station has registered the case under POCSO,” he said.

The children were also given questionnaires. Those who mentioned that they went through abuse were shortlisted and counselled.

    @bala Urwa,it is not a question of pity on Orphans.Not all orphangaes are like the other .Many children suffer in orphanges.They are so strict ,no love ,but have to obey .Parents love is different and in these houses is different.No wonder children who grow up there ,mostly aggressive .When such monsters add their part to it ,absolutely pity them.These pedos know no parents ,can do what they want If they tell their caretakers ,noone will believe.These days most of us must have heard about child abuse by priests and Nuns long time back.

    @shashi shetty santhoor...You are absolutely right....It is best to avoid petting or playing with kids rather than getting on the wrong side due to the child's lack of understanding...Its a double edge sword as everybody will believe the kids because of these situations happening a lot these days around us...Most of the time children dont lie and it would have happened, but sometimes it could also be a figment of imagination.

    let the law takes its course. One advise for everyone. Be careful when dealing with kid. I know a 70yearold man was arrested because the child complained for bad touch which turned out to be chld's imagination. the child mistook petting like tapping on back and typical old time jokes of pulling child's knicker as bad touch. So, people who do pet children can fall into risk too.

    Capital punishment are mostly in middle eastern countries. I donot believe India follows such laws due to democracy. When will people learn to live in peace without committing crime at all. This is very bad and I believe very common in some countries and communities. Such abuse is very difficult for the young boys to Express and whole life they will suffer of thinking of such rapes on them for not of their fault at all
