In another shocking incident from Kerala, a father and his friends allegedly sexually abused a six-year-old girl for almost six months. The father also forcefully made her drink liquor before abusing her.

The incident came to sight when the girl of standard first showed some behavioural problems. Her mother took her to a paediatrician and then a psychiatrist who confirmed that she had been molested.

"She stayed with her father for around six months. When she returned, the child showed some serious behavioural problems," the mother told The Times of India.

"She used to suffer from stomach pain and had urinary infection. So, I took her to a hospital where the doctors grew suspicious, and suggested that the child may have been molested. In a further check-up by a gynaecologist, molestation has been confirmed. We also sought the advice of a psychiatrist. I have lodged a complaint against Korah," she said.

The mother of the minor has filed a police complaint against her husband for sexually abusing her child. Police have registered a case against the 40-year-old father, who is absconding, under Section 9 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences act and Section 328 of IPC (giving alcohol to a minor).

Dr Ajeesh Ramachandran, psychiatrist of the government hospital, who treated the victim, told PTI that apart the girl also named other people who sexually abused her. 

The gynaecologist reports proved that the girl was not raped, but was sexually abused, according to TOI.

The girl's parents separated around five years ago. The mother was living with her two minor daughters and asked the father to take care of the elder daughter a year ago.
