Chilld sexual abuse (10-year-old girl) from Kerala at a cinema theatre in Malappuram was reported, the girl’s mother was arrested on 13 May. The minor girl was sexually abused by a person(Moideen Kutty) aged around fifty inside a cinema theatre at Edappal in Malappuram. The sexual abuse of girl which occurred on April 18, was caught on the surveillance camera installed inside the theater hall.
What is the case about?
The incident occurred on April 18 when a 60-year-old businessman molested a minor girl at a cinema hall in Malappuram’s Edappal town.
Every second of the vile abuse was captured by a CCTV camera, which caught 60-year-old KV Moitheenkutty engaging in sexual acts with both the 10 yrs old girl and her mother.
But Moitheenkutty was arrested only on Saturday – despite the sickening abuse taking place on April 18.
When the theatre owner came across the footage, he immediately contacted Childline with the visual evidence, following which a complaint was filed with the local police on April 28. However, the investigation was allegedly delayed by the police officers.
Police rapped for negligence
State Women’s Commission Chairperson M.C. Josephine said that the police failed to rise to the occasion. “It’s shocking that all this happened with the knowledge of the mother and an appropriate case should be registered against the mother too,” said Josephine. The Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala demanded strict action against the police officials for not acting on time. “Criminal cases should be registered against all the erring police officials,” he said.
The police faced the music for not acting against the culprits in spite of having received the video footage of the abuse from Childline officials on April 26. The police arrested the man, Moideen Kutty, and the girl’s mother.
The 35-year-old woman was arrested after additional CCTV footage showed that she was engaged in a sexual act with the 60-year-old accused, who then also sexually abused the child. Deputy Superintendent of Police Shaji told The News Minute that the woman knew that Kutty was sexually abusing her daughter. The man continued to do so throughout the show. The child has now been shifted to the Nirbhaya Kendra, a children’s home in the town, PTI reported. Relevant sections of the POCSO Act have been slapped against both.

Newspapers, political leaders, ministers of #Kerala and media spoke about the religion of victim and aggressor after #Kathua rape and murder. But when a child is molested in #Malappuram they are all careful to say a criminal is a criminal. Religion has nothing to do with it
