The special court for the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act cases on Thursday sentenced a 64-year-old man to 20 years of rigorous imprisonment for sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl. Besides the 20-year jail term, the man also got five years of imprisonment for kidnapping the girl.

The incident happened in Chennai’s Ashok Nagar. On November 27, 2019, Murugan of MGR Nagar kidnapped and sexually assaulted the minor. However, he even threatened to kill the girl if she told anyone about this incident.

But when the victim’s mother got to know about the incident, she filed a complaint against him with the women’s police station, Ashok Nagar. The police arrested the accused on December 27, 2019, and remanded him in custody.

The case has now come to an end, and Murugan has been proven guilty. Special judge M Rajalakshmi said Murugan is being convicted of 20 years of rigorous imprisonment under the POCSO Act. She further said that the court has also given him an additional five years of imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000 under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for kidnapping.

The court has also ordered the state government to pay the victim’s family Rs 2 lakhs as a compensation amount.

A few days ago, POCSO handed down a jail term of 20 years to 13 people, including two government servants, a media person, a BJP functionary, and a city police inspector, for forcing a 13-year-old girl into prostitution and raping her.

Eight others were awarded life imprisonment. One of the accused, S. Mareeswaran, died during the trial. 14 others had also been arrested by the All Women Police in Washermanpet for raping the child trafficking victim.

A compensation of more than Rs 10 lakh was also given to the child by the court.

sanitation workers die in Tamil Nadu

In an incident of manual scavenging, two workers died of suffocation while cleaning an unused sewer pit in a new house in Tamil Nadu. The incident happened in Kondur village in Villupuram on Monday. The police alleged asphyxiation as a preliminary reason for their deaths.

The deceased, identified as 38-year-old G Iyanar and 35-year-old K Manikandan, hailed from Paakam village. The two were engaged in constructing a house attached to a grocery store near the Kandamangalam area. The reports state the project was almost complete, but only the walls of the sewer had to be plastered.

Locals state that Iyanar and Manikandan were working in the sewer pit when they died on the spot. After receiving information about the incident, the police rushed to the scene.

Superintendent of Police N Sreenatha said the sewer had not yet been used. The men may have suffocated due to a lack of air circulation or due to a leakage of toxic gases from nearby sewers. The police have sent their body for an autopsy at the Mundiyambakkam Government Medical College and Hospital.

According to Sreenatha, an investigation into this matter is underway, and a case will be filed against the house owner Sekar (50) after that.

This is not the first case of asphyxiation death while cleaning a sewer. Earlier in October, four sanitation workers died of suffocation after inhaling toxic gases while cleaning the underground sewer of a Faridabad hospital.

The reports state they had entered the manhole without any safety equipment to clean it. During this, they suffocated after inhaling poisonous gases and fell unconscious.
